Teaching-Method Scales and Mathematics-Class Achievement: What Works with Different Outcomes?
Hafner, Anne L.
American Educational Research Journal, v30 n1 p71-94 Spr 1993
The influence of mathematics-specific teaching practices on class-level mathematics achievement was studied using Second International Mathematics Study data for 236 eighth-grade classes (approximately 7,000 students). Links between class characteristics and teaching practices are explored. High socioeconomic status and high-ability students generally received teaching practices that predict high achievement. (SLD)
