Abstract

We argue that learners’ generated examples can do more than answer mathematical task requirements. Studies show that examples may also reflect students’ strategical thinking, which is fundamentally related to how students solve problems. Our argument is relevant to the use of automated assessment platforms. A central challenge of such platforms is to provide automated data that enables learning about students’ strategies based on their examples. We report here on a study that examined data analysis of submitted examples of a 7th-grade student engaged in two activities comprising six example-eliciting tasks in the context of fractions. Characterization of the examples’ properties, provided by automated assessment of the student's submissions, enabled us to learn about his strategies to answer the tasks, such as the expanding strategy.
