Online Assessment: A Study of the Development and Implementation of a Formative Online Diagnostic Tool in a College Developmental Mathematics Course
Kadhi, Tau
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Southwest Educational Research Association (Dallas, TX, Feb 5-7, 2004)
This paper addresses instrumentation design and an ongoing study of an online formative assessment instrument and its effects in pre-college (developmental/remedial) mathematics courses. The use of facet theory and instructional technologies are harmonized to construct and scale an online instrument designed to document student procedures while learning multiple meanings and models of fractions (MUL). Skills were coded a priori and mapped as per "facets of thinking" (Minstrell, 2002). Subsequently, this Fraction Diagnoser should provide a finer "grain size" than the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA) test and the THEA number subgroup (Levy, 1994).
