Summary This paper explores an aspect of mathematics that has been overlooked often - student explanation, or communication. The data used is derived from a large-scale project in Victoria. Australia, the Improving Middle Years Mathematics and Science (IMYMS) project. Primary student explanations on two open-response items are examined to illustrate the bene tits of incorporating this type of item in mathematical assessments. Techniques for analysing the data and displaying the results of the analysis are presented. The analysis shows clearly how more sophisticated thinking and explanations develop - information of benefit to teachers of these students.
