International Study of Mathematics Achievement: Planning Conference. Final Report and Appendix.
Travers, Kenneth J.
This document reports on a planning conference of the International Mathematics Committee, responsible for the second study of school mathematics to be conducted by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). The study will address issues of interest to mathematics educators, with emphasis on the areas of curricula, classroom processes, and comparisons with performance in the first IEA mathematics study. Three phases are envisaged: planning, now underway; data collection, in 1978-79; and data analysis, interpretation, and dissemination, in 1978-81. Questions to be addressed, instrumentation, and procedures for conducting the study are discussed. Appended is a list of teacher, school, and student variables to be considered, plus a detailed tentative timetable. (MS)
