14 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume attempts to bring together a collection of reports on the Geometric Supposer, a series of computer software environments which can be a tool for exploring particulars and generalizations in geometry.

Two experienced educators present a fresh approach to mathematics learning in the middle grades with the transition from arithmetic to algebra. The authors provide a collection of balanced, multi-dimensional assessment tasks designed to evaluate students' ability to work with mathematical objects and perform mathematical actions. --from publisher description
Assessment in the service of instruction( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an effort to examine issues raised by the effort to assess the performance of educational institutions, a project focusing on the social purposes and intellectual foundations of assessment practices in education was initiated. The primary goal of the project was to explore the possibility of developing new, more appropriate educational assessment strategies. As part of the project, several panels were convened, each focusing on a broad purpose of educational assessment. This document is the report of the first panel, which focused on the role of assessment in classroom instruction. It includes papers by Eva L. Baker, Eugenia Kemble, Philip Jackson, David Hawkins, J. Parker Damon, Asa G. Hilliard iii, Howard E. Gruber, Robert T. Keegan, Judah L. Schwartz, Edwin F. Taylor, Nancy Willie, and Michael S. Garet. The panel concludes with four recommendations: (1) in developing new assessment materials, it is worth starting small; (2) the development of new assessment materials should be carried out by groups with a strong interest in the content areas being assessed; (3) schools interested in adopting new forms of assessment should begin by focusing on a small number of classrooms and subject areas; and (4) making new forms of assessment work in practice will depend on the sensitivity and ingenuity of teachers.

The geometric presupposer : points and lines by Judah L Schwartz( )

4 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The geometric presupposer allows students to master such concepts as congruence, similiarity and parallelism, and names of shapes and measurements. The geometric presupposer provides this solid foundation for geometry by introducing simple constructions that can be made using a straightedge and compass. Students can measure lengths, angles, areas and circumference, then experiment with mathematical combinations of these measures
M-ss-ng l-nks : young people's literature by Carol Chomsky( )

8 editions published between 1982 and 1991 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program designed to improve writing, reading comprehension, and spelling skills by allowing the user to fill in the blanks of literary passages
The geometric supposer : triangles by Judah L Schwartz( )

9 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This approach to teaching geometry lets students experiment with making constructions on triangles and encourages them to conjecture the theorems. The program allows the user to make any construction they wish on a triangle and records that construction as a procedure that can be executed with any type of triangle. Students are provided with a tool with which to learn about the properties of triangles. Students can make measurements, change the scale and repeat experiments. Students are familiarized with the properties of segments, circles, medians, altitudes, parallel lines, perpendicular bisectors, angle bisectors and midsegments
The Prices of secrecy : the social, intellectual, and psychological costs of current assessment practice : a report to the Ford Foundation by Judah L Schwartz( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Problems in accountability assessment are examined from a unique perspective by considering the prices paid as a result of the use of secret tests (tests comprised of items drawn from non-publicly available item banks). This report is a compilation of the following articles: (1) "The Social, Intellectual, and Psychological Prices of Secrecy" (K. A. Viator); (2) "Secrecy in Testing: The Social Costs from an Equity Perspective" (A. G. Hilliard, iii); (3) "The Unfair Effects of Standardized Testing on Blacks and Other Minorities" (C. V. Willie); (4) "The Legal Advantages of Openness in Testing" (J. P. Heubert); (5) "Sending Clear Signals to Schools and Labor Markets" (S. E. Berryman); (6) "The Intellectual Prices of Secrecy in Mathematics Assessment" (J. L. Schwartz); (7)"Assessment in Science Education" (S. A. Raizen); (8) "Language and Language Arts Assessment" (C. S. Chomsky); (9) "Secure Tests, Insecure Test Takers" (G. Wiggins); (10) "The Psychological Costs of Secrecy and the Promise of Openness: The Impact on the Teacher" (E. K. Stage); (11) "Testing, Teachers, and Schools" (V. Perrone); and (12) "a Role for Technology in Changing Assessment: From Bias, Mediocrity, and Intimidation to Fairness, Challenge, and Support" (J. L. Schwartz). The papers focus on large-scale standardized tests and the impact of secrecy for three separate aspects of education: social; intellectual; and psychological. It is concluded that disclosure may improve test quality. (Sld)
The geometric supposer: quadrilaterals by Judah L Schwartz( )

7 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Geometric Supposer allows students using either a straight edge and compass to make any constructions on any quadrilateral. The program records that construction as a procedure that can then be executed with any other quadrilateral. As a result, the user can explore whether the consequences of a given construction on a given quadrilateral are dependent on some particular property of that quadrillateral, or if the result can be generalized. With the aid of The Geometric supposer as intellectual amplifier, conjecture can assume its proper role as a key activity in the learning and teaching of geometry

The geometric supposer : circles by Judah L Schwartz( )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Allows students to generate circles in a number of configurations (e.g. intersecting, tangent, separate, etc.) and to draw a variety of constructions on the circles, including segments, lines, extensions, circles, parallels, perpendiculars, angle bisectors and tangents. The student can also measure and manipulate the circles in a variety of configurations, making this a very powerful learning tool
