Student Opinions of EQUATIONS Tournaments.
Main, Dana B.; Jakubowski, Diane
A survey was conducted with 104 seventh-grade students in four classrooms participating in EQUATIONS tournaments. The tournaments had been taking place on a weekly-basis for several weeks. The study compares four basic pedagogical assumptions behind the tournament structure with student opinion of the tournaments. Student responses to the survey were analyzed in the form of frequency and percents of alternate responses and with chi square tests. It was concluded that students view their place in the tournament hierarchy as reflecting their ability, but they are willing to meet stiffer competition. They view winning as being under their control. The assumptions behind tournament structure for EQUATIONS appear to be consistent with student opinions of the EQUATIONS tournament. (Author/JBW)
