Written by an experienced practitioner who has a very current understanding of the school context, this book gives a fantastically clear, detailed and realistic strategy for primary schools with regards to raising attainment and inclusive practice. Anne Massey has provided a cogent and manageable system of provision mapping for whole-school improvement. – Pippa Whittaker, SENCO, Hans Price Academy, UK. 'This very detailed book will enable schools to develop whole school approaches which improve outcomes and ensure that they are removing barriers to participation and achievement for all children.' – Dr Peter Grimes, Principal Lecturer in Inclusive School Development, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK. This highly practical book contains all the guidance and resources a school will need in order to implement an efficient and effective system of pupil progress tracking and evaluative Provision Mapping. It is a tried and tested system that has been shown to improve outcomes for all pupils, including those with SEN, and sits at the very heart of school self-evaluation. Throughout this book, teachers will find achievable solutions to the problems schools face in trying to ensure that their practice results in all pupils making good progress. Anne Massey has adapted the original version of Provision Mapping and developed it into a more evaluative framework that links a number of school improvement actions together. All the recommendations in this book have been tried and tested in Primary schools, and have been proven to: bring about better progress and engagement for all pupils; provide an enhanced understanding of inclusion by teachers; improve communication between the school, parents and the Local Authority; reduce bureaucracy and paperwork for SENCOs; foster an improved understanding of 'value for money'. Headteachers, senior managers, leadership teams, SENCOs and other educational professionals will find the guidance and support provided by this toolkit invaluable. Provision Mapping will also be of value to those studying the more SEN-specific postgraduate diplomas or Masters level qualifications.

This is the first book devoted to the P scales; there has been no published research on the P scales. There is no documentation of the benefits that schools have derived from using the P scales, and no account has been given of how easy or otherwise teachers have found it to use the P scales in the assessment of their pupils. The book introduces the P scales and their application to teachers, describes the various subject areas of the scales and how to apply them in the assessment of pupils attainment levels. The book also describes how schools can use the assessment data collected in self-evaluation and setting of improvement targets for their pupils. It also discusses the P scales in terms of the validity and reliability of data collected and investigates the extent to which the scales measure what they were designed to measure. Head teachers have recounted their experiences of using the P scales, outlining the difficulties they have had in their schools using the scales and the benefits the schools have derived.

An effective state is essential to achieving socio-economic and sustainable development. With the advent of globalization, there are growing pressures on governments and organizations around the world to be more responsive to the demands of internal and external stakeholders for good governance, accountability and transparency, greater development effectiveness, and delivery of tangible results. Governments, parliaments, citizens, the private sector, NGOs, civil society, international organizations and donors are among the stakeholders interested in better performance. As demands for greater accountability and real results have increased, there is an attendant need for enhanced results-based monitoring and evaluation of policies, programs, and projects. This Handbook provides a comprehensive ten-step model that will help guide development practitioners through the process of designing and building a results-based monitoring and evaluation system. These steps begin with a OC Readiness AssessmentOCO and take the practitioner through the design, management, and importantly, the sustainability of such systems. The Handbook describes each step in detail, the tasks needed to complete each one, and the tools available to help along the way."

The assessment of young children's development and learning has recently taken on new importance. Private and government organizations are developing programs to enhance the school readiness of all young children, especially children from economically disadvantaged homes and communities and children with special needs. Well-planned and effective assessment can inform teaching and program improvement, and contribute to better outcomes for children. This book affirms that assessments can make crucial contributions to the improvement of children's well-being, but only if they are well designed, implemented effectively, developed in the context of systematic planning, and are interpreted and used appropriately. Otherwise, assessment of children and programs can have negative consequences for both. The value of assessments therefore requires fundamental attention to their purpose and the design of the larger systems in which they are used. Early Childhood Assessment addresses these issues by identifying the important outcomes for children from birth to age 5 and the quality and purposes of different techniques and instruments for developmental assessments.
