Issue Date: 
Teaching and Learning, 18(1), 1-8
A renewed interest in thinking and assessment was heralded by Singapore Prime Minister Goh, "The Ministry of Education . . . is looking into giving more weight to school assessments based on project
work, which is a better test of pupils' ability to innovate and apply knowledge" (Goh 1996). In January 1997, the Minister of Education, Rear Adm. Teo Chee Hean echoed this sentiment, "Refining the methods of
assessment would provide a better test of students' ability to innovate." (Lianhe Zaobao, 31 January 1997)
To expand on this interest in assessment, this article advocates the use of assessment to encourage and monitor thinking skills in project work. The first part briefly covers what is thinking, project work and assessment. The second part presents an example of project work and an assessment of the project with an emphasis on different thinking strategies.
