Measuring What Counts: A Conceptual Guide for Mathematics Assessment

Front Cover
National Academies Press, Feb 1, 1993 - Education - 236 pages

To achieve national goals for education, we must measure the things that really count. Measuring What Counts establishes crucial research- based connections between standards and assessment.

Arguing for a better balance between educational and measurement concerns in the development and use of mathematics assessment, this book sets forth three principles‚€"related to content, learning, and equity‚€"that can form the basis for new assessments that support emerging national standards in mathematics education.
