What Counts as Numeracy.
Maclellan, Effie
Scottish Educational Review, v33 n2 p157-68 Nov 2001
A study sought to ascertain the "official" conception of numeracy in Scotland as published in Her Majesty's Inspectorate (HMI) audit reports. 300 HMI reports on 300 primary schools were examined for references to computational proficiency and understanding of number. Segments signifying proficiency were significantly more numerous than those signifying understanding. Implications for practice are discussed. (Contains 42 references.) (TD)
