Teacher-researcher collaboration as transformation – A case study

2014-09-30

This paper details researcher collaboration with Lotta, a mathematics teacher at a Grade 4-6 school. This began with a six month study during which I observed Lotta's classroom teaching at Grade six. My pursuit of narrative perspectives in this study, created room for intersubjectivity and endeared Lotta and me to collaborate thereafter. Lotta's application for project funding from national school authorities, then paved way for researcher intervention in Lotta's teaching, at her now Grade four. Our conceiving teaching-learning in Vygotskian terms allowed for two kinds of interventions. Tal...

The impact of a teacher professional development program in formative assessment on mathematics teachers’ classroom practice

2014-09-25

This is a substudy in a project about a comprehensiveprofessional development program (PDP) in formative assessment (FA) formathematics teachers. My aim is to investigate in which ways the teachers’classroom practice change, with respect to FA, after participating in the PDP andwhat some of the reasons may be for these changes. Fourteen randomly chosenmathematics teachers in secondary school participated in the PDP. The teachers wereinterviewed and their classroom practice observed before and after the PDP.They have also answered two questionnaires. The PDPand the analysis about the teacher...

The impact of a teacher professional development program in formative assessment on mathematics teachers’ classroom practice

This study is a sub study in a project about a comprehensive professional development program (PDP) for mathematics teachers in formative assessment (FA). My aim is to investigate in which ways the participating teachers’ classroom practice change, due to the delivered PDP, and also to identify reasons for the changes and the variation in changes. Fourteen randomly chosen mathematics teachers in secondary school participated in the PDP. The teachers were interviewed and their classroom practice observed before and after the PDP. They have also answered two questionnaires. Preliminary result...

How hard can it be? What knowledge and skills does a teacher practicing formative assessment use?

2014-09-25

This case study investigates a teacher ́s use and need of knowledge and skills during interaction in whole-class is using formative assessment. This practice includes eliciting information about student learning, interpreting the responses, and modifying teaching and learning activities based on the given information. The teacher has participated in a professional development program and teaches grade 5 in mathematics. The results of the study will be presented at the conference.
