Abstract: 
Mathematical modelling is increasingly becoming part of an
instructional approach deemed to develop students with competencies
to function as 21st century learners and problem solvers. As
mathematical modelling is a relatively new domain in the Singapore
primary school mathematics curriculum, many teachers may not be
aware of the learning outcomes and competencies needed to develop
in their students during mathematical modelling. This paper reports
on the assessment of two groups of Primary 5 students’ (aged 11)
mathematical modelling competencies in their first attempt in
completing a modelling task. The students’ competencies are assessed
to be at levels 1 and 2 of a researcher-designed rubric. Findings appear
to suggest that students faced particular challenges in formulating a
mathematical problem from the real-world problem through making
assumptions. Implications on teacher education on the facilitation
of problem formulation and mathematisation during mathematical
modelling at the primary level are drawn.
