At the heart of assessment for learning is the concept that students who truly understand and are involved in their learning will experience accelerated rates of achievement. Students who are involved in their learning can be thought of as assessment-capable or active learners. They know what they need to learn, where they are with that learning and what their next learning steps are. To enable students to take charge of their learning, they need to be deliberately and systematically taught how to be assessment capable and active in their learning.
