Assessment in Mathematics Education Session as part of the Canadian Mathematical Society Summer Meeting
June 7, 2019 - June 10, 2019
This Education session Assessment in Mathematics as part of the Canadian Mathematical Society Summer meeting will provide an opportunity for instructors to share such pedagogical knowledge as their innovative and meaningful approaches to assessment and the outcomes of these approaches, especially in the age of ease of access to both pedagogical resources and assignment solutions online. Through discussions at the last CMS Summer meeting, it was discovered that many undergraduate mathematics instructors struggle with assigning meaningful assessment, given that extensive introductory level proofs, solution manuals, and solutions are easily available online. We hope this session will increase mathematics instructors’ assessment toolkit and open a needed discussion about this critically important part of every mathematics course.
