Description

"A thoughtful, idea-filled book for educators confronting the challenge of creating and using alternative assessment procedures. Drawing on years of work with mathematics teachers, Kulm turns the focus on what really works in the classroom. A must read for teachers looking for practical suggestions and potential models as they develop new assessment systems."
-- Thomas A. Romberg, director, National Center for Research in Mathematical Sciences Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Kulm offers hands-on guidelines for assessing student understanding of procedures, concepts, and problem-solving, including advice on developing and interpreting assessment tasks, assessing individual and group mathematical activities, using scoring rubrics, developing student portfolios, and more.
