Gordon Stobart

Gordon Stobart is Honorary Research Fellow at the Oxford University Centre for Educational Assessment (OUCEA) and Emeritus Professor of Education at the Institute of Education, University College London.

He has extensive experience as a secondary school teacher, educational psychologist and assessment researcher. As a founder member of the Assessment Reform Group he has worked for over twenty years on developing Assessment for Learning.
At the same time he was involved in research projects which studied the impact of policy, particularly on teachers. These included a longitudinal study of variations in teacher effectiveness (the VITAE project), evaluations of government strategies in England and Scotland, and the impact of changes in assessment policy (ARIA project).

Much of his current professional work involves working with teachers on classroom teaching and learning – and the role formative assessment plays in this.
