Assessing Mathematical Competencies

Mathematics Education Group Research Seminar Series 2017

This presentation by Andreas Pattersen is based on two studies from his ongoing PhD. The first study investigates to what extent an item analysis scheme could be utilised by a group of teachers, and prospective teachers, to identify the competency demands of mathematical tasks. The second study, using an item response theory approach, investigates to what extent the rated competency demands of the items is reflected in item difficulty.
