Students’ learning process can be analyzed through assessment. By scrutinizing mathematics assessment results, we can analyze several aspects, such as students’ understanding, reasoning, mathematics communications and problems solving.
Considering the importance of assessment, QITEP in Mathematics plans to formulate mathematics assessment in Southeast Asia Region. As a standpoint of realizing the plan, the Centre conducted the first Regional Wide Assessment Meeting from 4‐6 October 2011 at QITEP in Mathematics. The Centre invited several experts in mathematics assessment. They were Prof. Frederick KS Leung from the University of Hong Kong, Dr. Cheah Ui Hock from SEAMEO RECSAM, Ms. Dewani Goloi from Ministry of Education Malaysia, Prof. Iwan Pranoto from Bandung Institute of Technology, Dr. Ali Mahmudi, S.Pd, M.Pd from Yogyakarta State University, and Prof. Subanar, Ph.D. from QITEP in Mathematics.
In the future, the project aims to gather more relevant data, with the hope that based on the results yielded from the regional wide assessment, the Centre will be able to provide relevant training for mathematics teachers in the region
