These are described as matrices and tablet image support, observation and documentation. Even linguistic tools are used, these are explained as communicative expressions and interpretations of students' communication and actions. The special teachers express that formative assessment and self- and peer-assessment reveal students' knowledge for themselves and for others. A desire for space to develop assessment practice in different ways is expressed.
