The Study of Constructed-Response Assessment of Elementary Mathematics Education in Korea
Kim, Min Kyeong; Cho, Mi Kyung
EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, v11 n2 p299-311 Apr 2015
Recently, many countries have considered various assessment methods in order to measure multiple ways of students' thinking skills and problem solving ability. Recently, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology [MOEST] (2009) in Korea revised the mathematics curriculum, which now more focuses on enabling students to explain mathematically as well as to reflect on their thinking. This method allows students to express or debate on their own ideas in order to extend their mathematical communication skills. The purposes of this study are to introduce the background of such implementation of a constructed-response assessment in Korea as well as to investigate how elementary teachers implement a constructed-response assessment in developing and refining a framework. The developed grading rubric for the constructed-response problems in terms of a holistic approach was introduced. Further, the implication of applying constructed-response items to third-grade students in Korea was discussed.
