Issue Date: 
Paper presented at the 4th Redesigning Pedagogy International Conference, Singapore, 30 May to 1 June 2011
In order that learning and teaching can benefit from the use of assessment strategies which enhance the understanding aspect in the learning of mathematics, it is inevitable the teacher would be required to write items in a consistent way to improve and judge students’ understanding in mathematics. This workshop outlines major considerations in assessing the levels of understanding in mathematics learning, developing and implementation of a multi-dimensional assessment for learning strategy. Participants will be inducted into the dimensions of mathematics understanding, and be introduced to a series of procedures to modify items corresponding to these different dimensions. The workshop will include sorting of items according to the dimensions of understanding, item development-practice which is fundamental to understanding the principles behind assessment for mathematics understanding and to devise rules for modifying conventional classroom items to strengthen learning and teaching of mathematics understanding.
