Ben-Jacob, Marion G.; Ben-Jacob, Tyler E.
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conferences on Education Technologies (ICEduTech) and Sustainability, Technology and Education (STE) (New Tapei City, Taiwan, Dec 10-12, 2014)
This paper explores alternative assessment methods from the perspective of categorizations. It addresses the technologies that support assessment. It discusses initial, formative, and summative assessment, as well as objective and subjective assessment, and formal and informal assessment. It approaches each category of assessment from the perspective of its goals. It describes the capabilities of the popular technologies that facilitate assessment. It then maps out a strategy for improved self-assessment that is based on the concepts of mathematical modeling and reverse mathematics. [For the complete proceedings, see ED557181.]
