Abstract

Mathematical proficiency is a key goal of the Australian Mathematics curriculum.However, international assessments of mathematical literacy suggest that mathematicalreasoning and problem solving are areas of difficulty for Australian students. Given theefficacy of teaching informed by quality assessment data, a recent study focused on thedevelopment of evidence-based Learning Progressions for Algebraic, Spatial and StatisticalReasoning that can be used to identify where students are in their learning and where theyneed to go to next. Importantly, they can also be used to generate targeted teaching adviceand activities to help teachers progress student learning. This paper explores the processesinvolved in taking the research to practice.
