Student Contracting for Achievement Grades in Ninth Grade General Mathematics.
Ball, Linda Virginia
The effect of ninth-grade general mathematics students signing contracts for achievement grades on their mathematics achievement and on their attitudes toward mathematics was investigated. Four classes were used in the study; each of two teachers taught one experimental and one control class. The Test of Mathematical Skills and Concepts and The Mathematics Attitude Inventory were used as pre- and posttests. Results showed no statistically significant difference between the mean achievement scores of the experimental and control groups, and no significant difference between mean attitude scores.
