The Pattern and Structure Mathematical Awareness Program (PASMAP) stems from a 2-year longitudinal study on students' early mathematical development. The paper outlines the interview assessment the Pattern and Structure Assessment (P ASA) designed to describe students' awareness of mathematical pattern and structure across a range of concepts. An overview of students' performance across items and descriptions of their structural development are described.
