Topic Study Group 33 (TSG 33) for ICME-12:
Assessment and Testing in Mathematics Education

Michael Neubrand (Germany)
Christine Suurtamm (Canada)

Team Members:
Belinda Huntley (South Africa)
Youngsuk Lee (Korea)
David Webb (USA)
Liv Sissel Grønmo (Norway)

Liaison IPC Member:
Johann Engelbrecht

The exhibits have been roughly assembled into
three partly overlapping strands for
presentation and discussion:

Strand 1 (room: TBA): Large scale assessment &
the implications for the development
of teaching and learning.
Strand 2 (room: TBA): Classroom assessment & developing students' and teachers'
Strand 3 (room: TBA): Task & test design: Various perspectives.

To allow as many participants to present as
possible, the schedule has plenary sessions
and sessions broken into the strands. (The
numbers indicate the ICME paper numbers.)
