    MTED 396-- Assessing Students' Fraction Knowledge K-6

    1 credit hour course for elementary education and elementary mathematics majors.

    course is designed to review current research on K-6 students' learning of fractions and on uses of assessment for identifying student knowledge of a topic. Emphasis will be on understanding the progression of elementary students' development of fraction knowledge, understanding how to create appropriate                                                                                                                                                                                          assessment tools for determining students' fraction knowledge, and understanding how to analyze students' responses to assessment items to determine students' progress in understanding fractions. Through readings, discussion and practice developing and implementing assessment tools, students will extend their knowledge of assessment in K-6 mathematics classrooms.

    Prerequisites:  Full-time student, MTED 390, acceptance into the Education Program, and practicum placement.
