An Examination Into the Stability of Mathematics Attitude and Its Relationship to Mathematics Achievement From Elementary to Secondary School Level.
Anttonon, Ralph George
Developed was a principal component factor scoring technique for an instrument devised by Cyril J. Hoyt to measure mathematics attitude. The instrument was administered in 1960 to students (607) in the fifth and sixth grade, and again in 1966 to those in the eleventh and twelfth grade. Scores were examined for consistency in attitude and for relationship to mathematics achievement as measured by subscales of Iowa Tests and grade point averages. Low positive correlations were established between: (1) elementary and secondary scores, (2) elementary attitude scores and mathematics achievement, (3) secondary attitude scores and mathematics achievement.
