Attacking a question in this way makes the learning more active and enables children to view assessment as an exciting experience that can help them progress.

Have you ever tried scrunched up or crumpled assessment before?
This is a tried and tested strategy for self, peer and whole-class assessment and gives children the chance to make their ideas visible in an active and exciting context. It facilitates knowledge and understanding upgrades and helps the class to work as a team of learners.
Crumpled assessment is a very engaging way to get a snapshot of the ideas and explanations children hold and you can use the information to design and provide targeted learning opportunities for conceptual change.
