This paper will describe the initial phases of a three-year project whose purpose is to devise assessment instruments and follow the implementation of the Chance and Data content of A National Statement on Mathematics for Australian Schools. A discussion of the rationale used in devising items will be followed by descriptions of the four types of instruments developed. Finally, the results of pilot trials carried out in recent months will be presented.
