Abstract

This study describes Singapore students' (N=607) performance on a recently developed Mathematics Processing Instrument (MPI). The MPI comprised tasks sourced from Australia's NAPLAN and Singapore's PSLE. In addition, the MPI had a corresponding question which encouraged students to describe how they solved the respective tasks. In particular, the investigation considers two tasks the cohort found difficult to solve'a relatively complex task from the Singaporean item bank and a novel task from the Australian tasks.
