Agreement by Secondary and Postsecondary Faculty on the Content of High School Geometry.
Tan, Sinforosa G.
This study explored: (1) the opinions of secondary and postsecondary faculty on what ought to be included in the secondary geometry curriculum to prepare students for selected postsecondary courses, (2) the effect of feedback of participants' responses, and (3) the reasons given by the participants to support their judgments. The original sample consisted of 426 secondary and postsecondary faculty members. The results of the study, after two rounds of questionnaires, indicated that some major differences exist between secondary and postsecondary faculty on what ought to be included in the secondary geometry curriculum and on the justifications used to support their judgments.
