NLSMA Reports, No. 15, Patterns of Mathematics Achievement in Grade 11: Y-Population.
Kilpatrick, Jeremy; McLeod, Gordon K.
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). Further, it is of the subseries that analyzed data for the purpose of identifying differential patterns of mathematics achievement which are correlated with different textbook series. This particular report considers comparisons made for the Y-Population (studied from grades 7 through 11) from achievement test data collected at the end of grade 11. (NLSMA Reports Nos. 12-14 cover similar analyses for grades 7 and 8, 9, 10.) Only the approximately 45 percent of the original population that had completed beginning algebra, geometry, and advanced algebra are included in this study. Twelve mathematics content scales, appropriate to all three courses, were used as the dependent variables. No significant differences were found on the two number systems scales or on any of the six geometry scales. Significant differences were found on two of the four algebra scales.
