Similarly in considering teachers, classroom and standardised assessment are also used within socio-political debates related to system performance and accountability, and as a corollary can influence teacher motivation and efficacy related to their teaching and assessment approaches (Harris & Brown, 2009; Wang, Beckett, & Brown, 2006). Hence, motivation and assessment are important elements of instructional leadership as these influence student learning, engagement, and perseverance, as well as teachers’ instructional capacities and willingness to engage in professional development, and innovative practice.

The objective of examination procedures was initially to increase efficiency of military operations; however, the impact these tests had on both military operations and later educational uses (such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test [SAT]) forever changed the face of assessment (Black, 2001). With the adaptation of standardised testing for educational purposes, large-scale summative assessments and multiple-choice response formats became the testing methods of choice – chiefly because they were highly efficient and costeffective when assessing large groups of people from a diversity of geographical regions.
