Assessing diagram quality: Making a difference to representation
Diezmann, Carmel M. (1999) Assessing diagram quality: Making a difference to representation. In 22nd Annual Conference of Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 1999, Adelaide.
The effectiveness of a diagram in problem solving is dependent on its utility as a cognitive tool. In order to develop students’ ability to use diagrams as cognitive tools, teachers need to assess the quality of students’ diagrams and provide them with the necessary support. However assessing the quality of diagrams is problematic. This paper discusses how theoretical prototypes and exemplars of level of performance provide a practical and effective avenue for assessing the quality of students’ diagrams.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
