Assessment literacy is commonly discussed in relation to teachers and less in relation to learners and other stakeholders in education, such as school leaders. In this chapter, we offer a definition for the concept assessment literacy before presenting three narratives that exemplify assessment literacy in school principals, teachers and students. We argue that to develop an assessment for learning culture in school all three groups need to become ‘assessment literate’. We conclude the chapter with a discussion of issues related to implementation and future directions in assessment literacy.
