Introduction to the assessment resource banks (ARBs) and their diagnostic potential
The Assessment Resource Banks (ARBs) are computerised banks of assessment material that are available on the Internet. They are linked to the current New Zealand curriculum statements in mathematics, science, and English. This workshop will introduce and demonstrate the ARBs. This will be followed by a description of the diagnostic potential of the ARBs. The final part will be an interactive discussion of the diagnostic dimension of a selection of resources from the mathematics ARB.
