Assessing True Academic Success: The Next Frontier of Reform

September 1999, Volume 92, Issue 6, Page 462

Assessment, however we define it, is only a means to an end: the learning of mathematics by all our students. If you suspect that your assessment is getting in the way of that basic goal, then I urge you to tame whatever beast it has become. The success of your students is in your hands—for your assessment is the instrument that defines that success.
