2019 Formative Assessment: the key to improving learning outcomes in mathematics F to 9  Tue 04 Jun 2019


Closing date for registrations is : 28/05/2019


This full day professional learning program will provide an overview of formative assessment. What it is and isn’t and what is needed to implement a targeted teaching approach to mathematics in Years F to 9. It will introduce participants to the tools and advice available on the DET website to support a formative assessment approach. That is, the Assessment for Common Misunderstandings (AfCM) and the Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years (SNMY) materials. A brief overview will also be provided of the evidenced-based resources produced as a result of the recent Reframing Mathematical Futures II project on mathematical reasoning.

Who should attend: Teachers for level F - 9

Presenter: Di Siemon

Di Siemon is a Professor of Mathematics Education in the School of Education at RMIT University (Bundoora) where she is involved with the preparation of pre-service teachers and the supervision of higher degree students. Di is currently the Director of the Reframing Mathematical Futures project, which is working with 32 secondary schools nationally to develop an evidenced based teaching and learning framework for mathematical reasoning in the middle years. She is also actively involved in the professional development of practicing teachers, particularly in relation to the development of the ‘big ideas’ in number, the teaching and learning of mathematics in the middle years, and the use of rich assessment tasks to inform teaching. Di has directed a number of other large scale research projects including the Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years Project (2003-2006), the Researching Numeracy Teaching Approaches in Primary Schools Project (2001-2003), and the Middle Years Numeracy Research Project (1999-2001). Di is a past President of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and a life member of the Mathematical Association of Victoria.
