Description: Please find attached doc for detailed requirements
Diagnostic assessment and report of a child’s understanding of fractions. This report should reflect an understanding and implementation of a
constructivist approach to the diagnosis and follow-up teaching.
It is a study of an individual child and his/her understanding of fractions. It incorporates an initial diagnostic assessment interview with the child followed
by an analysis of the interview upon which a plan for the subsequent tutoring sessions is devised. This intervention will take the form of one on one
tutoring sessions with the child. The Child Study also includes a report documenting what occurred during a planned intervention over a period of weeks
as well as an indicative plan for what future teaching and learning would be needed.

2. Summary of the diagnostic interview – Describe the extent of the child’s fraction understanding in terms of the key understandings (Results from the diagnostic – where is the child at?) Include a summary of what you decided to do in the tutoring sessions and why. Describe how your plan is linked to the key understandings and to the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics.
3. Summary of the tutoring sessions This section should describe the key learning that took place. Consider some of the following questions as a guide:
oWhat did the child learn and how did s/he demonstrate that learning?
o What were some of the tasks that worked well? Why did they work?
oWhat didn’t work? Why didn’t it work?
oWhat did you do about that?
It is important to give specific examples of tasks and the child’s responses
4. • Future planning – Give a brief description of what the child appears to know at the end of the process and what s/he needs to learn about next
