Abstract: This study aimed to investigate how pupil self-assessment could be effectively integrated
into teachers’ daily mathematics lessons in Singapore school settings. Four classes taught
by different teachers in two primary schools collaborated in the study over three
semesters. Data were collected through survey questionnaires, classroom observations,
interviews with teachers and pupils, and pupils’ responses to teacher-designed selfassessment
tasks. The study revealed that although teachers encountered initial
challenges, over time they could overcome them and become quite comfortable in using
pupil self-assessment tasks in their lessons. The results also showed that teachers
developed positive views about integrating pupil self-assessment into their daily
mathematics teaching. Implications for classroom practice and the challenges of teacherled
assessment change will be discussed.
