This book aims at describing pathways and achievements of the LLP Comenius Project “FAMT&L – Formative Assessment in mathematics for teaching and learning”. The main purpose of this research project was to encourage the use of formative assessment in the teaching-learning process carried out by mathematics teachers in lower secondary school. The five partner universities involved in the Project have been the Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna (Italy), the University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Southern Switzerland), the University of Cergy-Pontoise (France), the University of Cyprus, and the Hogeschool Inholland (Netherlands).
Through the voices of the several actors involved in this project, the book wants to contribute to the international debate on issues regarding teachers’ professionalism in the European school systems: specifically, on the development of the professional skills of teachers in the field of assessment practices and on the use of formative assessment in the classroom.
