- Publisher's Summary
- The third in the series of yearbooks by the Association of Mathematics Educators in Singapore, "Assessment in the Mathematics Classroom" is unique as it addresses a focused theme on mathematics education. The objective is to encourage teachers and researchers to include assessment of non-cognitive attributes and to use techniques in addition to paper-and-pencil tests that focus on typical problems. Several renowned international researchers in the field have published their work in the book. The thirteen chapters of the book illustrate evidence-based practices that school teachers and researchers can experiment in their lessons to bring about meaningful learning outcomes. A recurring theme in most chapters is the widely circulated notions of formative assessment and assessment for learning. The book makes a significant contribution towards assessment in mathematics and is a must-read for graduate research students and mathematics educators.
