Assessment for Learning Tasks and the Peer Assessment Process
Lauf, Lorraine; Dole, Shelley
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
A program of Assessment for Learning (AfL) was implemented with 107 Year 12 students as part of their preparation for a major external test. Students completed extended mathematics tasks and selected student responses were used for peer assessment purposes. This paper reports on two of the AfL elements, namely task selection and peer assessment as part of the AfL process. The importance of initial task selection in terms of supporting students in building awareness of quality of mathematical arguments is highlighted.
