Standardized testing in primary school mathematics is widely used as a monitoring device in education systems world-wide. This paper uses Foucault’s notion of assessment as a technique of power, to examine how members of one Australian school community experienced the annual compulsory standardized Year 5 Aspects of Numeracy Test. The paper examines the ways in which the “numerate” child is inscribed within the “normalizing” apparatus of standardized assessment.
