Mastery goals and high-stakes summative assessment

Activity: Talk or presentation typesLecture and oral contribution


In this talk, I discuss the challenges and affordances of assessing students’ possession of mastery goals in general and mathematical competencies in particular. I argue that using a set of mathematical competencies as learning goals for mathematics education challenges the reliability of the assessment schema, but also holds potential in raising the validity. The latter is evidenced and exemplified by a case study of oral exams following experimental competency oriented mathematics education in grades 7-9 in Denmark.
