Abstract

In this paper, I discuss the challenges and affordances of assessing students’ possession of mathematical competencies. It is argued 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 by a case study of oral exams following experimental competency oriented mathematics education in grades 7-9 in Denmark.
