Abstract: This study examined the quality of teachers‟ assessment tasks and associated student work in the Singapore Science classrooms. Using the authentic intellectual quality framework, two sets of standards and scoring rubrics were developed for the training of teachers to judge the quality of teachers‟ science assessment tasks and student work. The samples of teachers‟ assessment tasks and student work were collected from 30 elementary schools and 29 high schools. The results show that the teachers‟ assessment tasks at both grade levels did not demand high authentic intellectual performance from students. As a result, student work did not demonstrate high authentic intellectual quality. The findings suggest the need for improving teachers‟ assessment literacy in science through professional development in authentic assessments.
