This study introduces the idea of e-contests for mathematics. The idea is based on screen-casting students’ problem-solving processes in a computer environment and assessing their solution processes of doing mathematics including the final product of their work. This process-oriented assessment may promote the integration of cognitive tools in technology and introduce open-ended problems and problem posing into the math contests. The ability to assess student solutions electronically may promote students’ interests towards mathematics and advance students’ cognitive abilities. In addition, performing e-contests in online environments can allow more students to access and benefit from math contests.
