Assessment is pervasive in the teaching and learning of mathematics at any educational level though often its impact on the students’ and teachers’ experiences is underestimated. With this ERME topic conference we wish to sharpen the focus on the ‘assessment of mathematics’ part of mathematics education research. We announce here the first topic conference on (summative and formative) assessment of mathematics and related feedback, its consequences on students’ learning and its impact on teachers’ practices. 

Types of contributions

The International Programme Committee (ICP) welcomes theoretical, methodological, empirical, or developmental contributions in the form of:

  • Short papers (4 pages),
    Short papers will be presented and discussed at the conference, and the papers are to be included in the proceedings of the conference.
  • Full length papers (8 pages)
    Full lenght papers will be presented and discussed at the conference, and the papers are to be included in the proceedings of the conference.
  • Poster proposals (2 pages)
    Posters will be displayed and presented during a dedicated session during the conference and the proposals will be included in the proceedings.

Contributions should be in relation to the conference topics below:

Topics & Scope

While we understand that division into themes is at times artificial, we propose them to focus the contribution on these particular aspects. However, we will work to integrate these themes by also welcoming research papers that bridge two or three of the conference themes. We will support the ‘cross-theme’ work by scheduling thematical sessions during the conference to allow participants to become aware of others’ research and network accordingly. 


Peer reviewing will proceed as customary for CERME conferences: each paper will be peer-reviewed by two authors from among those who submit to the conference; so please expect to review up to two papers yourself. The IPC will review posters. The final decision about acceptance rests with the IPC.

Author guidelines

Authors are invited to send the poster proposal or full paper in English by 12 January, 2024. All posters/papers submitted will be reviewed by the Programme Committee and authors will be notified of the acceptance of the paper by e-mail by 11 March, 2024. Authors will be able to track the progress of their submission and will be invited to send the camera-ready papers by 5 April, 2024. Small changes to the papers after the conference are possible till 30 June, 2024.

Papers should follow the FAME_template.docx, where you find the instructions for writing the proposals for posters or papers for the conference. Please use this template for preparation of your manuscripts. The styles to be used are defined for all parts of the paper, from the title to the list of references. Please, follow the instructions in the template and use the styles to ensure correct publication of your paper. The abstract should contain no more than 250 words and should be also copy/pasted to the adequate text box of the paper submission form.

For submitting a paper, certain steps should be completed on Easychair.
