The search for a holistic approach to evaluation

ByJoão Formosinho, Júlia Formosinho

This chapter presents our own holistic approach to evaluation which embodies an ethically principled and democratic perspective incorporating the active contribu - tion of children, practitioners and families. This approach is interested in all aspects of children’s learning with an intention to see the whole child, rather than frag - mented elements of her/his identity, learning processes and progression in learning.
