Using Assessment to Reshape Mathematics Teaching: A Casebook for Mathematics Teachers and Teacher Educators, Curriculum and Staff (Studies in Mathematical Thinking and Learning Series), Etta R. Hollins, 9780805829624

SKU: 9780805829624 Category: Product ID: 12073


This casebook was developed to better prepare mathematics teachers to use assessment of student learning to inform and shape their instructional decisions. It embodies the editors’ belief that assessment is a powerful but under-used tool in improving teaching and learning in mathematics classrooms. The cases in this book are intended to assist teachers, teacher educators, curriculum and staff development specialists in learning to assess, and to support them in their efforts to link assessment with curriculum, teaching and learning. All of the cases in this volume are built around actual episodes from mathematics classrooms in which teachers use assessment as ongoing activity to better understand what their students are coming to know, and to monitor and improve their own teaching practices. They are intended as decision-making exercises.
