The Mathematics Reform Movement: Assessing the Degree of Reform in Secondary Mathematics Classrooms.
Calhoun, David O.; Bohlin, Carol; Bohlin, Roy; Tracz, Susan
This paper explores the nature and status of the mathematics reform movement (focusing on California's initiatives) in America's public schools, the connection between the reform movement and constructivist epistemology, the development of an assessment tool for measuring the degree of reform present in a secondary mathematics classroom, and the potential for investigating the relationship between the degree of reform and student achievement. Data analysis support the notion that measuring the degree of reform is possible and several instruments have a statistically significant degree of correlation with the expert rating. A discussion of future considerations is included and cautions against the use of rhetoric about reform now that research-based methods are available to measure the degree of reform.
