Analysis and critical thinking in assessment: Resource Pack (2013/2014)

Practice Tools and Guides
Published: Jul 2014
Author: Research in Practice

Analysis and critical thinking are central to good practice in children’s services, whether assessing if a child has additional needs or proceeding with a complex child protection inquiry.

The handbook includes key research and practice messages around analysis and critical thinking in assessment. It combines research evidence with the practice experience of agencies to explore how identified barriers to good assessment might be overcome. The focus is on ‘thinking in practice’ and, above all, on supporting practitioners to be more analytical in their assessments.

The accompanying exercises, case studies and tools are designed to support learning and practice.

These resources are the outputs of a Research in Practice Change Project.

Aimed at: Practitioners and managers.
