ab: From the introduction: As the mathematical reform movement continues to
enhance the quality of mathematics education at all levels, three
components have emerged as being key in promoting systemic change:
professional development, curriculum materials, and assessment. Of
these three, the one that has received the least attention is
assessment. In this article I will focus upon the development and use
of performance assessments, which have been viewed by mathematics
educators as a means to align assessment with new reform curricula and
to improve the links between teaching practice and assessment.
