This paper explores the definition of Assessment for Learning (AfL) and its importance in learning and teaching. Through lesson observation visits, the authors conducted a study to examine the practice of AfL by Hong Kong teachers. Results indicate that there is a considerable improvement regarding teachers’ competence in AfL, therefore it is recommended that more professional development programs for practicing teachers and pre-service teachers about AfL should be offered to promote young children’s capability of “learning to learn” in early childhood education.
