Did you know that the first 12 pages of the Alberta Program of Studies for Mathematics 10-12 (2008) contain the keys to changing your assessment practice forever? For too long, math assessment has been locked into a cycle of quizzes, unit exams, midterms, and finals. These performance tasks have nothing to do with the actual learning of mathematics. Not convinced? Ask yourself what a professional mathematician does and compare that with what we do in the average math classroom; they are vastly different activities. This session will introduce you to an assessment strategy that is responsive to the multiple ways of knowing and applying mathematics But first, we need to identify the dragons that stand in our way.
