These resources support teachers in making a consistent and balanced assessment of student achievement.

Online Interviews

  • Mathematics Online Interview: consists of appropriate hands-on assessment tasks where students demonstrate mathematical understanding and preferred strategies for solving increasingly complex tasks.
  • Fractions and Decimals Online Interview: allow teachers to better understand their students’ knowledge, skills and behaviours with regard to fractions and decimals.

Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years

  • Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years (SNMY) : assessment materials, the Learning and Assessment Framework, learning plans, authentic tasks and the research findings from the project that investigated a new assessment-guided approach to improving student numeracy outcomes in Years 4 to 8. The project identified and refined a Learning and Assessment Framework for the development of multiplicative thinking in the middle years using rich assessment tasks.

Assessment for common misunderstandings

  • Assessment for common misunderstandings : assessment tools based on a series of highly focussed, research-based Probe Tasks. The Probe Task Manual includes a number of additional tasks and resources which have been organised to address common misunderstandings.
