Citation: Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association, New York, 2008
Abstract: This paper relates a crucial aspect of a two-year professional development innovation/research project proposed to improve Singapore‟s poorest performing grade 7 and 8 students‟ learning in English language, mathematics, and science as a consequence of their teachers‟ developing capacity to plan and teach. The instrument and process particularly designed as a pre and post innovation moderation exercise to find “articulations of understanding”, which served as evidence of change in pedagogy and learning is described. Its set of dimensions of understanding can be used to plan and assess for cognitive depth and engaged learning.
