Role of the Mentor's Comments in the Performance of Mathematics Teachers
Gómez, Pedro; Arias, Marlene
PNA, v9 n4 p295-311 2015
We study the relationship between mentors' and mathematics teachers' performance in an education program. To this end, we characterize the relationship between the changes made in the written productions of three groups of teachers and the characteristics of their mentors' comments that could motivate those changes--type of comment, content, and knowledge type. The analysis of these relationships was performed with the help of contingency tables and logistic regressions. We found that, for the whole group of teachers, the changes made by them depend on the type of knowledge and on the content to which the comments refer.
