Dylan Ap Rhys Wiliam is a British educationalist and Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at the UCL Institute of Education and lives in Bradford County, Florida.[citation needed]

Education[edit]

Wiliam was educated at Whitchurch Grammar School in Cardiff and at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys in Greater Manchester.[2] He went on to study[clarification needed] at the University of Durham (Bachelor of Science, 1976), the Open University (Bachelor of Arts, 1983), the Polytechnic of the South Bank (Master of Science, 1985) and the University of London (PhD, 1993).[3][2]

Research and career[edit]

His research focus is the professional development of teachers.[4] His 1998 book, Inside the Black Box,[5] which he wrote with Paul Black, was a successful polemic about formative assessment, selling over 100,000 copies.[6] He demonstrated his ideas in a 2010 BBC documentary series, The Classroom Experiment, in which a class at Hertswood School was encouraged to participate more widely in activities such as answering questions.[7]

According to Google Scholar[1] and Scopus[8] his most cited peer reviewed publications are on Assessment for learning (AFL) and formative assessment.[9][10][11]
