Abstract

National testing and reform agendas, with their focus on school improvement, has led toincreased collection and scrutiny of student data. The analysis of these data usually occurs ata school level, often by school leaders. What is less common is the opportunity for studentsto scrutinise their individual data and take ownership over the results and subsequent learningexperiences. This paper reports on a study whereby students and teachers collaborativelyinterpreted mental computation test results and identify future teaching and learningdirections. The findings showed positive outcomes for students led to changes in teachergrowth and approaches to their teaching of mathematics.
