Abstract: Measurement informs our actions and decisions well beyond school, necessitating that students develop a conceptual understanding of measurement alongside the procedural ability to measure objects. We present a first attempt to explore how students express their understanding of measurement by analyzing the behavior of college and elementary students as they completed measurement estimation tasks. We clustered observable student behavior to identify six profiles of behavioral strategies which may indicate different levels of conceptual understanding.
