How do we Assess Mathematical Thinking?

How do we intentionally create assessment strategies in mathematics that support the development of mathematical reasoning in grades 4-8?  Using the Critical Thinking Consortium’s ‘Principles of the Thinking Classroom’ as a framework, teachers will have an opportunity to consider and develop assessment strategies focusing on the mathematical processes. Assessment approaches that are compatible with relevant research on student learning will be emphasized.

Audience: Grades 4-8
