An Alternative Method of Assessment: Using Student-Created Problems.
Rash, Agnes M.
Primus, v7 n1 p89-95 Mar 1997
Presents an alternative to using a single-class-period test to assess a college student's knowledge in the mathematics area. Evaluation of student mathematical knowledge and understanding of concepts is improved when students are given opportunities to design problems and solutions, applying classroom-acquired knowledge to new situations. Such intellectual tasks beyond mere information retrieval help assess higher-order thinking. (AIM)
