The production of research is an immense contribution to the development of various areas, exploring problems and solving problems, providing suggestions/feedback to improve the practices, and developing future(s) for better practice. Educational research/dissertation/thesis is essential to explore existing problems in the field of education, research the knowledge, explore the solutions, and solve the problems. In this context, this course is designed to help students or MEd scholars in mathematics education to conduct research in the field of mathematics or STEAM education. While conducting research, students will be able to develop various research-related skills. The following are the primary objectives of the course: 

  • Explore the specific problem/s existing in the field of mathematics education and STEAM education 

  • Conduct a review of literature related to the area of research 

  • Use one or more research methods to conduct a research 

  • Collect data by using research tool/s or method/s 

  • Interpret and analyze data collected from the field

Course Facilitator

 Mr. Laxman Luitel

Class Time: Every Sunday (4:30 – 7:30 p.m.)
Assessment is viewed as the process of gathering and discussing information from multiple and diverse sources in order to develop a deep understanding of what student know, demonstrate, understand, create and they can do with their knowledge as result of their educational experiences. The process culminates when assessment results are used to improve subsequent learning. The course intends the ways of assessing the students' performances and exploring the issues while developing multiple assessment tools in mathematics with the notion that effective assessment is ongoing and embedded in instructional activities. This course focuses on the emergent and evolving perspectives and issues in students' assessment in mathematics education.
Learning outcomes
The course has been designed to implement through active engagement of learner with the following learning outcomes:
1. Demonstrate a sound understanding of assessment in mathematics education.
2. Reflect on different assessment perspectives in mathematics education.
3. Develop creative, analytic, and critical thinking on different aspects of assessment in mathematics education.  
4. Independently develop valid and reliable assessment tools and implement them.
5. Participate in debate/discussion on socio-cultural and equity aspects of assessment in mathematics education.
6. Make a sense or meaning of alternative perspectives of assessment in mathematics education from the analyses of literature in the field.
7. Make presentations on selected national/international perspectives on assessment in mathematics education.
