This chapter describes how the Assessment for Teaching approach outlined in this book has been applied to support the teaching of students with additional learning needs. It provides detail of a process of assessing students, interpreting results, setting goals, and developing individualised learning plans. Developmental progressions are central to this process, as with all students, and their importance is emphasised in inclusive school contexts where teachers may or may not have experience or training in supporting the learning of students with additional needs.
