Abstract

Problem-solving and problem-posing have become important cognitive activities in teaching and learning mathematics. Many researchers argued that the traditional way of assessment cannot truly reveal what the students learnt and knew. Authentic assessment was used as an alternative method in assessing the students' mathematical learning. A performance rubric is an appropriate tool in examining students' ability to solve and pose mathematical problems.
