Using Algebra Word Problems to Assess Quantitative Ability: Attributes, Strategies, and Errors.
Sebrechts, Marc M.; And Others
Cognition and Instruction, v14 n3 p285-343 1996
Examined relations between algebraic word-problem attributes and students' strategies, errors, and problem difficulty. Found that constructed responses capture strategy formulation and high-level planning--as do traditional measures of quantitative reasoning--but are more sensitive to individual problem characteristics and procedural errors that may be helpful in instruction but are a potential source of bias in assessment.
