Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Written assignments are an expected part of any pre-service professional training for teachers, but do such assignments offer evidence for appropriate professional learning? This paper discusses one assignment, a case study of target setting for an individual pupil, from one cohort of 37 students on a Post-Graduate Certificate of Education course. The analysis of the scripts considers evidence for learner-knowledge, practical wisdom and professional traditions, and any interactions between these from student reflections to identify opportunities for professional learning and a developing teacher-knowledge of assessment in mathematics.
