ACME's report on the assessment of problem solving across phases

22 June 2016

AssessmentofpsfrontpageACME has just published a new report Problem solving in mathematics: realising the vision through better assessment.

In the new report, ACME:

- considers the assessment of problem solving in public tests and examinations across all key stages of mathematical development;

- describes the desirable characteristics of questions used to assess problem solving;

- sets out actions for policymakers, awarding organisations and the mathematics community to ensure that improvements in the quantity and quality of problem solving in mathematics tests and assessments are realised over time.
