Involving Students in Developing Math Tests
Rapke, Tina
Mathematics Teacher, v110 n8 p612-616 Apr 2017
Many studies have claimed that traditional testing actually promotes students' use of superficial approaches to learning. When preparing to take tests, students typically memorize and cram rather than understanding the material and gaining new perspectives. This article describes how the author recast traditional tests by having students take a role in developing the tests. Drawing on current literature and data collected from her own math classroom, Tina Rapke demonstrates how tests can be used to promote approaches to learning that can be deep.
