Abstract: This paper reports on an ongoing research project that aims to build teachers’ capacity in authentic assessment and assessment for learning. Using a critical inquiry approach, five Grade 6 teachers from a charter school are engaged in reflecting on their conceptions of assessment. They are also involved in authentic assessment task design during bi-weekly professional learning community meetings. The data sources include focus group, analysis of assessment tasks and associated student work samples, teacher and student interviews. The mathematics authentic assessment co-designed by the teachers and its implications on their conceptions of assessment and on student learning will be discussed.
