Assessing Higher Order Thinking in Mathematics

By Gerald Kulm | Go to book overview

educational system, but present tests have important limitations. The computer is a very general tool for constructing environments which may improve the quality of assessment and the kind of information available to students, teachers, parents, society and school personnel. We should invest in a serious effort to design and develop computer-based assessment systems that reflect the educational goals we value.
