Evaluation in the Mathematics Classroom: From What and Why to How and Where.
Suydam, Marilyn N.
This document discusses the role and the scope of evaluation in the mathematics classroom. The scope of mathematics objectives to be evaluated, the scope of evaluation purposes in the mathematics classroom, and the scope of evaluation procedures are noted. Specific comments are made on various procedures: observations, interviews, inventories and checklists, attitude scales, and various types of paper-and-pencil tests. Both general and specific suggestions for planning tests and for writing various types of test items are included. An annotated list of selected references is included to direct attention to documents which will provide additional help. (JP)
