Researchers of classroom practice have developed, and used various frameworks and classroom observation instruments to study teaching and learning. This paper identifies the assessment practices of teachers in selected secondary mathematics classrooms in South African disadvantaged schools. Valuable lessons for professional development could be learned from this research that can provoke debates and potential future studies in different contexts.
