Classroom Assessments in Mathematics: High School Students’ Perceptions
Minghui Gao

This study examined high school students’ perceptions of mathematics classroom assessments. 248 American students gave valid responses to a questionnaire.

Results are discussed in regard to previous literature and future research.
