Within this chapter suggestions are made for assessment systems that harness the potential of digital technologies as tools for both constructing knowledge and developing the capabilities for actively participating in society. It suggests that schools should support young people to use both technological and human resources when faced with complex learning situations. It argues for the importance of teachers continuously seeking feedback about students’ learning, and suggests that this is the most important form of assessment in terms of challenging low expectations and enhancing student learning and attainment.
