This book provides math teachers and those who work with them with a comprehensive and practical resource for planning and implementing alternative assessment in the classroom. Drawing from his own experience working with teachers at several grade levels in a variety of settings, Gerald Kulm offers hands-on guidelines for assessing student understanding of procedures, concepts, and problem-solving, including advice on developing and interpreting assessment tasks, assessing individual and group mathematical activities, using scoring rubrics, developing student portfolios, and more.|Kulm provides specific tips and ideas for getting started and simple ways to adapt math activities and problems for assessment. He includes numerous examples of student products such as puzzles, projects, problems, interviews, and group activities that can allow for individual differences in learning and productivity.|Kulm also offers a section of frank teacher-written summaries that provide firsthand insights into what worked and what did not. The range of types of classes and assessment goals described in these summaries make it easy for nearly any teacher to find a situation similar to that of their own class and adapt the strategies that were successful.
