What does it mean to ‘learn mathematics’? How do we know when someone has ‘learned’? What is the role of practice in learning? What are we practising and why? Why do we assess? What role(s) does it play? How do we recognize what we have really assessed? How does the assessment process itself affect students' activities? This chapter answers these questions in the context of automatic assessment of mathematics.

Keywords:   mathematics, learning, assessment process, automatic assessment
