Early public health nursing roles extended beyond sick care to encompass advocacy, community organizing, health education, and political and social reform.

However, the ways in which the words are interpreted and made manifest in educational policy and practice often reveal misunderstanding of the principles, and distortion of the practices, that the original ideals sought to promote.
Some of these misunderstandings and challenges derive from residual ambiguity in the definitions. While observing the letter of AfL, this does violence to its spirit. Yet others have arisen from deliberate appropriation, for political ends, of principles that have won significant support from educators.
In this scenario, scores, which are intended to be indicators of, or proxies for, learning, become the goals themselves. Real and sustained learning is sacrificed to performance on a test. This follows from the logic that when true learning has occurred, it will manifest itself in performance.
The converse does not hold: Learners can be taught how to score well on tests without much underlying learning. Assessment for Learning is the process of identifying aspects of learning as it is developing, using whatever informal and formal processes best help that identification, primarily so that learning itself can be enhanced.
Assessment for learning is part of everyday teaching, in everyday classrooms. A great deal of it occurs in real time, but some of it is derived through more formal assessment events or episodes.
What is distinctive about assessment for learning is not the form of the information or the circumstances in which it is generated, but the positive effect it has for the learner. Properly embedded into teaching-learning contexts, assessment for learning sets learners up for wide, lifelong learning.
These ideas are summed up in a short second-generation definition of Assessment for Learning generated by the Conference in March This is intended to make clear the central focus on learning by students. The definition is followed by some elaboration of it.
Definition Assessment for Learning is part of everyday practice by students, teachers and peers that seeks, reflects upon and responds to information from dialogue, demonstration and observation in ways that enhance ongoing learning.
Assessment for learning should be student centred. This should be a prime objective. Observation of these during on-going teaching and learning activity is an important basis for AFL. Special assessment tasks and tests can be used formatively but are not essential; there is a risk of them becoming frequent mini-summative assessments.
Everyday learning tasks and activities, as well as routine observation and dialogue are equally, if not more, appropriate for the formative purpose. Providing students with the help they need to know what to do next is vital; it is not sufficient to tell them only that they need to do better.
However, such help does not need to provide a complete solution. Research suggests that what works best is an indication of how to improve, so that students engage in mindful problem solving.
