Factors Related to the Achievement of Junior High School Students in Mathematics.
Bachman, Alfred Morry
The purpose of the study was to compare achievement in mathematics of seventh grade students under four different organizational patterns for mathematics instruction: (1) instruction by homeroom teachers, no special grouping, (2) instruction by homeroom teachers, interclass homogeneous grouping, (3) instruction by special teachers for mathematics, no special grouping, and (4) instruction by special teachers for mathematics, interclass homogeneous grouping. Analysis of covariance and correlation analysis yielded no significant differences or relationships for achievement among the four groups or for teacher mathematics preparation with pupil achievement. Significant differences or positive relationships were identified for self-concept of ability in mathematics with achievement; measured intelligence with achievement; teacher experience and achievement for girls; teacher mathematics preparation and achievement for girls; and length of class period and achievement for girls.
