## ASSESSMENT TASK ONE: Evaluation of two assessment strategies

Part One: Rational Number Interview
Report on students rational number understandings [400 words].

## demonstrate her understanding, in particular using visualization strategies and

prior knowledge. Ella was able to provide a justification for all of her strategies,

which allowed her to make self-corrections where she discovered errors in her

reasoning.

## Ella demonstrated a preference for using benchmarks of one and one-half to

assist in determining the size of a fraction. She also chooses partitioning and

iteration strategies when working with fractions. She is able to iterate parts onto

a whole, and uses the same strategy to find the whole when only part is given.

She understands how to partition equally, using her fingers to measure equal

## sharing. However, Ella showed uncertainty in treating fractions as a number

rather than a portion of an object. She initially preferred to treat the length of

the number line as the whole rather than referring to the whole numbers.

## Ella has a partial understanding of equivalence. She is able to find the

equivalent fraction of one given fraction, but is unable to recognise if two given

fractions are equivalent. It is also apparent that Ella has not yet developed a full

## understanding of how to apply operations to fractions. She is able to easily find

a fraction of a whole number, but has difficulty applying the same knowledge to

## In working with decimals Ella demonstrated a strong understanding of place

value. She is able to use language such as tenths, hundredths and thousandths

## misconception when comparing fractions in regards to size. She believes that if

one fraction has a digit in the thousandths it is of a smaller value than a number

that does not, because thousandths are smaller than hundredths, disregarding

the size of the other digits. She is able to record decimals when they are given

## in written language, and demonstrates her knowledge of zero as a placeholder.

Ella uses her knowledge of operations using whole numbers and applies them to
