A Decade of MERGA Theses
Mousley, Judith A.
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
The MERGA website has a list of the titles of the last 10 years of Australasian mathematics education Masters and Doctoral theses, with linked abstracts. After a discussion about the socially-determined nature of document analysis, this paper reports the results of an interpretive document analysis of the web page and the pages of abstracts, with a focus on (a) numbers of theses, by year and by institution; (b) methodological approaches used; (c) countries where data were collected; and (d) theses topics. Begle's (1979) framework of mathematics education domains is used to categorise 3 descriptors for each thesis. (Contains 10 figures.)
