Product Description

Edited by Jean Kerr Stenmark

This booklet offers examples of assessment techniques that focus on student thinking. As the forms of mathematics teaching become more diverse, the forms of assessment must also change. Authentic assessment tasks highlight the usefulness of mathematical thinking and bridge the gap between school and real mathematics.

 

Favorite Picks: “Yellow Book” on Assessment—A Golden Resource! (January 2010)
by Cathy Seeley, NCTM Past President

When I was asked to highlight an NCTM resource, I thought of several possibilities. But I would have to say my favorite “golden oldie” is a 1991 publication called Mathematics Assessment: Myths, Models, Good Questions, and Practical Suggestions, edited by Jean Stenmark from the work of an outstanding NCTM committee. I love NCTM’s recent publications on assessment, and I rely on them for in-depth, long-term work in this critical area. But that skinny yellow book published almost 20 years ago continues to be at the top of my list. Whenever I want to give teachers a quick start on expanding their thinking about assessment, especially about evaluating projects and open-ended student work, this is the resource I turn to. It includes a great overview of the landscape of assessment and then offers all kinds of models, lists, and tips, including a general rubric that helps in scoring open-ended questions and can be a great resource for teachers as they work toward the vision of mathematics teaching described in Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. “The Yellow Book” (as I call it) is a terrific resource, whether you want to discuss student work within your professional learning community or just want to learn more about assessment for your classroom.
