Most digital testing and practicing tools in mathematics education review only a final answer, and do not look at the steps taken to reach the final answer. However, intermediate steps provide essential information for a detailed assessment of student skills.
Assessing intermediate steps also corresponds to the pen and paper practice, and is a wish from the mathematics education sector. This project studies the automatic assessment of intermediate steps in mathematics education for domains such as Numbers and Relationships. We develop general feedback and assessment services that can be used by existing digital learning environments. These services give accurate diagnoses of intermediate steps and use these to determine mathematical knowledge, skills, and competences.
