The purpose of this study is to examine the views of teachers on student-centred practices in the new primary school curriculum. With this aim, new student-centred primary school curriculum assessment scale comprising of 22 items was developed. The study subjects were 370 classroom teachers working in 18 primary schools. Teacher views were examined by gender, grade level, experience and class size variables by employing t-test, one-way ANOVA, Kruskall Wallis H and Mann Whitney U tests. Teacher receptivity and implementation of student centered practices was relatively moderate. Results indicated significant differences in teachers' views by teachers' experience and class size. However, no significant differences were observed by grade level taught and gender.
