Abstract

This commentary focusses on the six papers related to Planning and Assessment through the lens of a South African researcher. Both countries acknowledge the role of assessments to improve student learning outcomes. This set of papers focusses on different forms of assessment and how the teacher uses assessments inside classrooms to improve the learning experience. There is a silence in the papers around the learning context and the history associated with the context. Drawing on the South African experience, the commentary explains how the socioeconomic context influences the learning processes.
