The Measurement of Understanding in Secondary-School Mathematics


by Maurice L. Hartung & Harold P. Fawcett 1946

In the present discussion, emphasis is placed on the understanding of basic concepts and principles. The objectives and measurement techniques relating primarily to fundamental skills and processes fall outside the scope of the yearbook. Since the ability to apply is closely related to any reasonably satisfactory notion of understanding, this ability is discussed from the point of view of evidence of understanding. Certain other types of objectives discussed by the Commission, such as the development ol desirable attitudes, interests, and appreciations, are important but cannot be considered here.
