 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 noncognitive attributes and to use techniques in addition to paperandpencil 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 evidencebased 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 mustread for graduate research students and mathematics educators.
