Embracing Technology: Assessment For, and As Learning in Grade Six Mathematics
MetadataShow full item record
Educational technology, although valued, is often underused within today’s classrooms. The following Master’s Project outlines the development, and pilot testing of a web-based resource for Mathematics educators who are looking to incorporate more technology into their assessment for and assessment as learning within the Number Sense and Numeration strand of the Ontario Mathematics curriculum. The main research question for this study was: What do educators think about a web-based resource designed to integrate technology and assessment for and as learning, in Grade 6 Mathematics classes? Through a document analysis and a group interview, a small sample of educators evaluated a web-based resource that embraces and amalgamates a note-taking application with assessment for and as learning. Key design features including flexible unit plans were developed using backwards design. Feedback was used to improve and refine the development of the resource. The project is discussed in terms of future development of the website.
