This session looks into current uses of formative assessment in primary school Mathematics learning and the challenges of embedding formative assessment into everyday instruction in a sustainable manner. It will take a look at what the research says about formative assessment, its role in providing differentiated instruction and strategies for embedment into the curriculum. It will also consider the implications of a growing research and evidence base around how specific forms of assessment impact learner mindsets. Attention will turned towards how we are currently using assessment to inform differentiated Mathematics instruction in Australian primary schools. What’s currently working in schools? What challenges or roadblocks prevent ongoing, effective use of data to inform instruction? How do current practices reflect and fit with the research?
