An assessment tool for probability
Probability can be a tough concept for students to understand. Yet, it is foundational for understanding statistics topics typically taught in the middle school curriculum and for making informed decisions in the real world.
The researchers of the Diagnostic Inventories for Cognition in Education (DICE) project are developing an assessment that targets reasoning covered in the statistics and probability domains of most states' middle grades math standards as well as in the Common Core State Standards.
We hope that our assessment will help teachers pinpoint the individual concepts that each student is struggling to understand. Our assessment is unique because it uses a new method that enables us to provide feedback about students' overall performance and identify students who may be reasoning with misconceptions.
