Description/Abstract

For teachers and educators keen on applying the principles of performance assessment to raise mathematics classroom standards.

In recent years, many educators and teachers have shown keen interest in using performance assessment to reform and improve the quality of teaching and learning in mathematics classrooms. Performance Assessment in Mathematics presents concepts, methods, and examples of performance assessment in mathematics, based on research and practices in Singapore classrooms.

The first part of the book provides introductory readings about assessment, alternative assessment and performance assessment. The second part offers a collection of performance tasks, solutions, rubrics, and suggestions for possible implementation in a mathematics classroom. A list of relevant literature, as well as student work samples on some performance tasks, is also provided at the end of the book.

A special feature of the book is nearly all the performance tasks presented have been tried and tested out in Singapore secondary schools, and all the tasks are designed based on Singapore’s mathematics curriculum with its intended use in real classroom teaching and learning in mind
