The pros and cons of using tests and examinations and alternatives based on the judgments of teachers are considered in terms of four key criteria: validity; reliability; impact; and required resources. Evidence from research and examples of current practice within and outside the UK support the case for making more and better use of teachers' judgments in assessment of learning. In this way assessment of learning (summative assessment) can be compatible with assessment for learning (formative assessment).
