This chapter focuses on teaching and learning composing in the English National Curriculum, and how this can be problematic for teacher assessment. This is explained as being because there are often confusions between assessment of process - of composing - and product - of composition. Differences between the two are described, and ways in which formative and summative assessment can be employed are discussed.
