About this Unit
A significant aspect of teachers’ work is focused on assessment and mathematics classrooms are renowned for their traditional reliance on pen and paper testing. In this unit students will investigate contemporary formative and summative assessment practices of and for learning mathematics. Students will investigate how to use results from assessments including NAPLAN to plan teaching and learning, and provide intervention where appropriate. A range of intervention programs used in Australian schools will be explored and compared.
