Assessment is an important part of my work because….
Teaching, learning, and pedagogical research must be open to, and adapt to, the changing conditions of culture. However, the structure of education and, more specifically, teaching and the evaluation of student learning, is still very much based on a model more suited to an industrial society despite significant cultural and economic shifts due to globalism and technology. To help inform students and teachers as they navigate this changing cultural milieu, my research seeks to reveal assumptions about teaching, learning, and mathematics, through an understanding of the judgments students and teachers make about mathematics and their place as learners and teachers of mathematics.
The current assessment focus of my work is:
- the language of evaluation in mathematics instruction
- classroom assessment and the role of judgment in teaching and learning mathematics
- evaluation of experiential education
- teacher education in classroom assessment
