AbstractProfessional standards in teaching are developed in many education systems, with professional learning and quality assurance being the central purposes of these standards. This paper presents an initiative in developing a professional development progress map (hereafter, progress map) within a learning-oriented field experience assessment (LOFEA) framework. The article examines the use of a progress map to support professional learning in teaching supervision in the field experience of a teacher education programme. Views of users, including 16 tertiary supervisors and 21 teacher participants of the in-service programmes, were collected. Issues relating to supporting student teachers' professional learning with standards-referenced assessment, are discussed around four themes, namely intention, instrumentation, interpretation and implementation.
