My name is Maria Silwer, and I'm a graduate student at NMS. In my research I investigate assessment in the mathematics classroom (years 4-6). What do the students say; when is assessment done, how, by whom, how are the students affected by the assessment? What do the teachers tell? What is the overall picture?

My background consists of a long teaching experience as a teacher and tutor (in mathematics) for pupils in grades 1-6. I have also worked with teacher education at what was then called Pedagogisk Inspiration in Malmö, been a mathematics developer in one of Malmö's districts and led the mathematics lift.

In recent years, I have worked as a teacher in mathematics education at Kristianstad University. In 2023-2024, I will be teaching Mathematics Education to preschool teachers teaching in pre-school classes and will be visiting teachers to bee, in practice.
