Place Value: Developing quality assessment items


Place value forms the building blocks of number, however it can be a difficult construct to accurately define and assess in the classroom. Currently many of the assessments used for whole number place value include questions which fail to expose common student misconceptions. These misconceptions include the face value misconception and independent column thinkers. This session will use the results of extensive research into assessment items for place value in Years 3-6, to explore the creation of quality assessment items. The results of the research will be presented and suggestions for improving both teaching and assessment of place value will be shared with participants. A framework for setting up a whole school approach place value based on 6 key aspects will be presented and a developmental progression will be shared. This session is suitable for teachers from Years 1-6 and Mathematics Leaders.
