Assessment for Learning Techniques in the Pacific Island Context: What are Teachers’ Views?

Julie Serow, Julie Clark

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This study investigated teachers’ views, all from a Pacific Island context, of assessment practices as it relates to mathematics learning in early childhood, primary, and secondary settings. Based on the analysis of these views, collected via a written survey (n=25) from invited workshop participants in Nauru, a series of four mathematics assessment workshops was designed where the participants engaged in the creation of authentic assessment tasks that are linked to the teaching/learning cycle. Post-surveys and in-depth interviews with six teachers explored their views about using authentic assessment in Nauru. The teachers’ views concern the purpose of assessment and their current assessment practices.
