Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the assessment literacy development model called P2R-WATA (Practicing, Reflecting and Revising with Web-based Assessment and Test Analysis), on improving the assessment knowledge and perspectives of secondary in-service mathematics and science teachers. A single group for pre and post experimental design is adopted in the study involving 23 secondary in-service teachers. Quantitative data, including an achievement test on assessment knowledge and a survey on teacher's perspective on assessment are collected and analyzed. The major findings generally confirm the effectiveness of the model. Firstly, the assessment knowledge (p<0.05) of the participants is found to improve after the training. Secondly, a significant change in the teachers' assessment perspective is observed after the training. Suggestions on how to improve teacher's assessment knowledge and perspectives are also provided in this study.
