This chapter utilises elements of the '5Rs' framework suggested by the book's editors Rudd and Goodson, in order to (1) highlight the ways in which the practice and uses of assessment have been applied through policy in recent years; (2) consider the effect this has had on teaching, learning and the culture of schools; (3) suggest ways in which this dominant, regressive narrative is refracted in practice and the ways in which it can be questioned and resisited. The author argues for a continuing renewal of assessment as a formative and interactive aspect of teaching and learning where more critical and empowering pedagogoies and learning identites can develop.
