Mathematics alternative assessment continues to be a hot topic with much activity on development, standards setting, and relation to reform. This document defines alternative assessment as any assessment in which students construct a response to a question rather than choosing a response from a list. This annotated bibliography contains the articles representing Assessment Resources Library (ARL) holdings to date in the area of assessment alternatives in mathematics. Articles are included that stimulate thinking, provide ideas, and include actual assessment instruments as well as related articles on such topics as the impact of alternative assessment, portfolios, multiple intelligences, and electronic resources. All grade levels are represented as are both classroom and large-scale assessments and commercial and local efforts. An index is included. (Author/ASK)
