Improving Classroom Assessment Practices: A Collaborative Approach 

The purpose of this article is to discuss the assessment component of the 
Competency and Confidence Project (C^2).  C^2 was a collaborative effort 
between the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) and the Jefferson County School 
District (JCS).  CSM provided the project experts in mathematics content 
and instructional pedagogy; JCS provided expert mathematics teachers.  
These individuals worked together to create the C^2 workshops.
