Abstract: 
In this paper we elaborate on the ways for assessing problem solving that goes beyond the usual focus on
the products of the problem solving process. We designed a ‘practical’ worksheet to guide the students
through the problem solving process. The worksheet focuses the solver’s attention on the key stages in
problem solving. To assess the students’ problem solving throughout the process, we developed a scoring
rubric based on Polya’s model (1954) and Schoenfeld’s framework (1985). Student response to the
practical worksheet is discussed.
