Evaluating educational standards using assessment “with” and “through" technology


This paper reports on a feasibility study of creating a standardised assessment instrument to evaluate students' competencies found in the German national standards. The study aimed at combining widespread tools in math-classes, such as dynamic geometry and spreadsheets, in an integrated and computer-driven way. We report on the mathematical and technical feasibility: What limits were reached, and which opportunities have appeared? The report provides indications that a development process is feasible but that an attention to the task description is required, as the student may be unaware of the manipulations to perform tasks.
