Designing Assessment for Mathematics

In the second edition of this research-based book, Eileen Depka clarifies the purpose of rubrics, and illustrates the relationship between assessment, rubrics and math standards; the teaching of math; and students' discovery of math concepts. The author demonstrates how to drive instruction and enhance student achievement using assessment data and completed rubrics and discusses:Procedures to create effective assessment tools and rubrics Different types of scoring guides Weighted rubrics Student involvement in creating rubricsTwo new chapters focus on communication in mathematics and using data from rubrics to improve instruction. Each chapter offers easy-to-use, creative problems that are based on math concepts linked to national math standards and benchmarks.
