********************************* Sent at the request of Michael Neubrand. ********************************* Topic Study Group 33 (TSG 33) for ICME12: Assessment and Testing in Mathematics Education
Cochairs: Michael Neubrand (Germany) michael.neubrand@unioldenburg.de Christine Suurtamm (Canada) suurtamm@uottawa.ca
Team Members: Belinda Huntley (South Africa) huntley@stjohnscollege.co.za Youngsuk Lee (Korea) leyoungsuk@hotmail.com David Webb (USA) dcwebb@colorado.edu Liv Sissel Grønmo (Norway) l.s.gronmo@ils.uio.no
Liaison IPC Member: Johann Engelbrecht Johann.Engelbrecht@up.ac.za
The exhibits have been roughly assembled into three partly overlapping strands for presentation and discussion:
Strand 1 (room: TBA): Large scale assessment & the implications for the development of teaching and learning. Strand 2 (room: TBA): Classroom assessment & developing students' and teachers' knowledge. Strand 3 (room: TBA): Task & test design: Various perspectives.
To allow as many participants to present as possible, the schedule has plenary sessions and sessions broken into the strands. (The numbers indicate the ICME paper numbers.)
