Mathematics Assessment Questionnaire: A Survey of Thoughts and Feelings for Students in Grades 7-9. Technical Report Supplement #1. Research Edition.
Hecht, Deborah; Tittle, Carol Kehr
This supplement to the "Technical Report for the Mathematics Assessment Questionnaire" describes methods for examining student responses to the questionnaire and focuses on the data for criterion-referenced-test (CRT) type scores. The Mathematics Assessment Questionnaire (MAQ) was developed to provide information about students in grades 7 through 9 that is complementary to that provided by teacher assessments or standardized tests of mathematical concepts and principles. The MAQ samples students' thoughts and feelings in relation to doing and learning a particular process of mathematics--solving mathematical word problems. The responses of 1,737 students are discussed on an individual student level and aggregated at the class level (60 classes). Student responses were basically examined at statement level and at the three item cluster level using CRT-type response categories. The final section of the document provides information about how and why several items of the MAQ were rewritten. Twelve tables present data about student responses, and one figure illustrates domain specifications for the project. Three appendices provide tabulated data to supplement the discussion. (SLD)
