This book aims to provide theoretical discussions of assessment development and implementation in mathematics education contexts, as well as to offer readers discussions of assessment related to instruction and affective areas, such as attitudes and beliefs. By providing readers with theoretical implications of assessment creation and implementation, this volume demonstrates how validation studies have the potential to advance the field of mathematics education. Including chapters addressing a variety of established and budding areas within assessment and evaluation in mathematics education contexts, this book brings fundamental issues together with new areas of application.
