Evaluating curricular provision
A reflective teacher is one who clearly understands the intimate links between the processes of planning, teaching and assessment. In considering the evaluation of lessons, it is possible to highlight many of the features of this cycle - see Scott-Baumann, Bloomfield & Roughton.

For readings on lesson evaluation as part of the process of formative assessment, and on individual target setting resulting from such a process, see Torrance & Pryor. Also see Hayes, who looks broadly across interrelated aspect of the primary teacher's role and includes useful material on planning, linking this firmly to the cycle of planning, teaching and assessment:
