"When Girls Value Mathematics as Highly as Boys": An Analysis of Junior-High Students' Mathematics-Related Beliefs.
De Corte, Erik; Op't Eynde, Peter
This study explores the mathematics-related beliefs of Flemish junior high school students and how they relate to gender, achievement level, and tracking level. Results indicate that students' mathematics-related belief systems are interconnected very strongly with the educational track in which they take their mathematics courses, but also with gender and the way the teacher evaluates their achievement level.
