Assessment as a Strategic Tool for Enhancing Learning in Teacher Education: A Case Study
Doig, Brian; Groves, Susie
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 28th, Bergen, Norway, July 14-18, 2004
This small exploratory case study describes an attempt to integrate the academic and practical aspects of a teacher education course in order to promote deep understanding of children's ways of understanding mathematics. The assessment regime of the course was used as a strategic tool for engaging students, and the assessment tasks themselves were used as the means of generating genuine integration, or case knowledge, of the content of the course. The results indicate that the approach was effective in achieving the aims of the course, and student reaction to the approach was extremely positive. [For complete proceedings, see ED489632.]
