The project will investigate how assessment affords learning and what characterizes different assessment practices when assessment is used as a foundation for learning. Our main research question is:

How do school owners, school leaders and teachers express their assessment competency through their interpretations, understandings and practices?

More about the project is presented in Norwegian.
