What Students Have To Say About Mathematics: Education Reform & Students' Reality.
Brown, Pamela J.; Kreisman, Michele Booth; Noble, Audrey J.
This study was conducted to explore the views of the absentee partner by examining students' perspectives of education reform, specifically with regard to their experience with instruction in a school district committed to K-12 mathematics reform. Survey data for this study were drawn from the responses of 1,176 elementary and secondary education students on a locally-developed mathematics attitude survey. Academic self-efficacy was examined in light of the instructional strategies reported by students to be used most frequently in classrooms. While there are several significant relationships between self-efficacy and the instructional strategies used in the classroom, students' grade levels are strongly related to their levels of academic self-efficacy and the presence of reform-inspired instructional strategies.
