2011 (English)In: Proceedings of CERME 7, The Seventh Congress of the European Society for Research in Mathematics Education, 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
Mathematical modelling is one competence assessed in the Swedish national course tests in mathematics (NCT) in upper secondary school. This paper presents, with empirical data from the NCT, a content analysis about what aspects of mathematical modelling are assessed and how it is assessed. The main conclusion is that only fragments (intra-mathematical aspects) of the modelling process are being assessed.
