Although an understanding of time is crucial in our society, curriculum documents have an undue emphasis on reading time and little emphasis on core underlying ideas. Given this context, a one-to-one assessment interview, based on a new framework, was developed and administered to investigate students’ understanding of core ideas undergirding the notion of time: succession, duration and measurement. This paper reports on the development and implementation of the interview and initial results for Year 3/4 students.
