    Abstract

    This chapter describes an initiative which developed from a collaboration between the Charles Darwin University (CDU) and the Ministry of Education in Timor-Leste. It was set up to assist Timor-Leste in managing a major educational change introduced recently in their country. The key focus of this initiative is on assisting school inspectors and teachers in their understanding and implementation of a new curriculum that places emphasis on formative assessment for young students in the early primary school years. The aim of this chapter is to explore the challenges that this task presents and to provide the CDU team with a better understanding of the context as it embarks on planning and delivering professional development through CDU’s biennial Steps to the Future workshop.
