Bryant, Deborah; Driscoll, Mark – 1998
Increased attention has been given to issues of assessment in recent years. Teachers of mathematics have been working to change both the way they elicit evidence of their students' mathematical thinking and the way they use that evidence to monitor students' progress and guide instructional decision making. This publication is based on work done…

Driscoll, Mark – 1988
This report discusses the change in mathematics curriculum influenced by researchers, society, and the mathematics field. Many research results suggest that students should learn mathematics by experience. Students' misconceptions may be formed because of the sudden shift from arithmetic to algebra. Up to the eighth grade, mathematical content has…
