Assessments are truly fundamental to educational institutions. Traditionally assessments have been closely linked to the educational system of merits. The last couple of decades though, two new purposes for assessments have emerged. The first one is linked to the governing of education using learning outcomes (i.e. test scores and grades) to hold schools accountable for their quality. The second one is linked to research findings on how so-called formative assessments (i.e. classroom feedback) can be a very strong tool to engage and motivate students in their learning and thus improve school results. The various purposes of assessments might however come to conflict with each other and put school leadership, teachers and students into challenges. The lecture departs from recent research in the field and Swedish empirical experiences, in order to present practical as well as theoretical tools to work productively with assessments in education.
