Abstract/Summary Inquiry in mathematics is well suited to address authentic, ill-structured problems that are encountered in everyday life. However, available formative assessment tools are typically not designed for an inquiry approach. An exploratory study using Design Research aimed to understand and improve assessment practices of mathematical inquiry. Data collected from one classroom provided detailed examples of these assessment practices in action. Results from the initial stage and future directions of the project will be presented.
