Abstract

This paper reports on an investigation into teachers’ orientations towards selecting assessment strategies. It is important to understand this because their choice reflects their value for teaching and learning. Ninety-four teachers agreed to take part in interviews focusing on the strategies they used for assessing their students. It was found that teachers used many different kinds of assessment strategies and the selection of the strategies was linked to the different orientations of the teachers. In addition to the two frequently mentioned orientations, it was evident that there were at least three other orientations that had influenced teachers’ choice of assessment strategies.
