From: Teachers’ use of classroom assessment techniques in primary mathematics education—an explorative study with six Chinese teachers

Solution type Percentage of studentsz Example
a Digit-based splitting the dividend 60 %
b Whole-number-based splitting the dividend 40 %
  1. zThe percentage is based on the number of students who provided a clear explanation of how they solved the problem (N = 158)
