Teacher assessment literacy research with pre-service teachers (PSTs) has highlighted that they are not well prepared to use assessments to support student learning. Thus, initial teacher education (ITE) programs needs to ensure that PSTs are provided with a range of opportunities to acquire both theoretical and practical assessment knowledge and skills. We reviewed assessment programs reported in the literature to develop a framework that will better guide curriculum developers. A total of 12 studies were considered after an initial literature search from three databases that generated 1002 articles from 1998 to September 2020. We reported the characteristics of assessment programs, including their orientation, content focus, outcomes measures, approaches and duration. We also identified some aspects of ITE assessment programs that are least explored.
