This paper describes the development of an interactive multimedia program based on principles of situated learning and its use with preservice teachers. The learning environment included an interactive multimedia program on assessment in mathematics, together with recommended collaborative implementation conditions in the classroom. A qualitative research study investigated whether student teacher teachers' learning from the interactive multimedia program on assessment transferred to professional practice in schools. According to the beliefs of the student teachers themselves, the multimedia program on assessment appeared to influence the types of strategies they employed and their thinking about assessment as they taught mathematics and other subjects.
