Students' Cognitions and Time on Task during Mathematics Instruction.
Peterson, Penelope L.; And Others
American Educational Research Journal, v21 n3 p487-515 Fall 1984
This study of two fifth grade classes investigated students' reports of attention, understanding, cognitive processes and affect during a nine-day mathematics unit on measurement. These self-reports appeared more valid indicators of classroom learning than observed time on task. Student affect mediated the relationship between instructional stimuli, achievement, and attitudes.
