Effect of Pupil Factor on Mathematics Achievement in Cambodian Urban Primary School
Chhinh, Sitha
Asia Pacific Education Review, v4 n2 p151-160 2003
It is generally observed in the literature of school effectiveness research that there are two broadly categorized factors influencing pupil achievement. However, the results of the studies based on empirically collected data vary from country to country and from time to time. Premised on this inconsistency of results and gaps in knowledge of this field in Cambodian education, this study was conducted in order to examine the effect of pupil factor on their mathematics achievement. The data were collected from pupils by means of questionnaires and a mathematics test. After controlling such factors as pupils' poverty during the research design, the results of the stepwise regression analysis showed that pupils' interest in mathematics was a significantly positive contributor to their performance. Pupils' absence frequency, gender, grade repetition and preschool attendance had significantly negative effects on their mathematics outcome. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
