2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the Sixth International Mathematics Education and Society Conference / [ed] Uwe Gellert, Eva Jablonka and Candia Morgan, Berlin: Freie Universität Berlin , 2010, 161-170 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents some tentative results of a study on assessment actions in mathematics classrooms, as they appear in the interaction between teacher and student. The study has four research objectives and in this paper results concerning one objective, discourses of assessment in mathematics, are presented. The theoretical frame-work is an institutional/discursive perspective coordinated with a social semiotic perspective. For the analysis additional theories are included. When it comes to discourses of assessment and/or of mathematics education, a dichotomous picture is often described in literature. The results in this paper broaden this picture, including drawing attention to aspects concerning students’ agency in assessment in mathematics.
