> Using Assessment
Using tasks that require students to think deeply about problem situations and communicate their mathematical understanding not only helps to determine students’ levels of proficiency but also provides insight into students’ mathematical thinking.
This book and its companion CD present a collection of 16 short tasks which have been developed and used in classrooms in the US. Sample responses are provided for each of the tasks, together with a scoring rubric and a rationale explaining how the criteria were used to assign scores. The text also suggests six types of classroom activity which are illustrated using tasks and scoring materials. Besides classroom use, there are suggestions as to how the tasks and associated scoring materials might be useful for staff professional learning.
