We first present findings from the number interviews of all the students to provide a context for the three cases. We then provide a narrative of each case study child based on our analysis of the data from the interviews and the teachers. The narratives include: (a) background information on the child, school, and family; (b) information about the child’s skills with regard to counting and story problems; and (c) a brief summary of the connections between the child, home, school, and assessment.

Tapping perspectives that illuminate a child’s funds of knowledge through home visits and family interviews provides complementary information about what a child knows. Assessment with young children is more a matter of triangulating multiple sources of evidence than thumbs up or down for a right answer. As a result, decisions about whether a child is proficient in some skills need to be based on diverse sources of information in multiple contexts, recognising that we might not be asking the right question to have access to a child’s knowledge.
