ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Aurora University
Accountability in education with regard to student achievement, especially within core subject areas such as mathematics, has emerged over the past ten years that support the need for impactful educational reform. Educators have been asked to evaluate the distinctiveness of the students that they serve to determine if there are better ways to increase student achievement (Johnson, Smith, Smythe, & Varon, 2009). The current study seeks to define those variables that do impact mathematics achievement among high school students. A review of literature with respect to mathematics-related topics is presented. The variables in the study included: gender, ethnicity, economic status and course length. Discussion regarding the results of the study is presented in the context of the larger educational goal of student achievement. Suggestions for modifying current course length as well as consideration of above stated variables were offered to increase student academic achievement.
