Assessing Mathematical Dispositions in Guided Math Groups: Part 6

Posted on October 26, 2010. Filed under: Mathematical Proficiency | Tags: |


Here are a couple of  research based ideas on assessing mathematical dispositions. Try one of these out and let me know how it goes!

I. McIntosh(2009)   created a prompt similar to this (I’ve adapted it a bit):

As a math student in this class, I rate myself on the following scale (put an X on the scale where you rate yourself).

What kind of math student are you:

1.  Probably the worst in the class _______

2. Pretty bad______

3. Not bad/ not good ________

4. Pretty good ______

5. Totally awesome! Maybe the best in the school  __________

The reason I rated myself as a/an ____ on the scale above is because:

II. See the NCTM article and samples of assessments of mathematical dispositions here: (http://www.fayar.net/east/teacher.web/Math/Standards/Previous/CurrEvStds/evals10.htm#f2802341).
