Mousley, Judith and Doig, Brian 2009, Assessment of mathematical development in early childhood : some views of preschool practitioners in regional and rural Australia, Australian research in early childhood education, vol. 16, no. 2, pp. 49-61.
As part of the project Mathematical Thinking of Preschool Children in Rural and Regional Australia: Research and Practice directors, teachers, and assistants in prior-to-school settings from regional and rural eastern Australia were interviewed to ascertain their beliefs and practices concerning early childhood mathematics. This paper reports the responses to uestions about their assessment of children’s mathematical activity and development. The practitioners provided examples of both incidental and planned assessment activities, the different forms these took, methods of recording, and how the results were used.
