Assessment for Learning in Classroom: How does it Work?
In raising the educational standards and quality, highly important variables in achieving successful educational
reform are teacher quality, quality development of new age teachers who facilitate learning in students as a profession with
value and ability to attract good and talented people who love teaching to become teachers, thereby necessitating the
importance of driving for qualitative production for society. One study that triggered interest in raising students’ learning
achievements by using measurement and assessment concepts in classes among academic experts throughout the world is
the “Inside the Black Box: Raising Standards through Classroom Assessment” study by Black and Wiliam in 1998 who
found formative assessments to have an effect size of 0.40 – 0.70 on capabilities and learning achievement while also finding
formative assessment to have the greatest effect size among variables related to educational development. Many academics
in the field of educational evaluation and assessment are currently showing greater interest and support for students,
education guides and school executives to implement “assessment for learning” concepts and methods in classes rather than
emphasizing only “assessment of learning” in line with the specifications of central education agencies. To improve
education outcomes and increase the impact of assessment results, teachers and school leaders need both a theoretical and a
practical understanding of the learning and assessment processes. This research finding will recommend how the concept of
assessment for learning could be working in classroom.
