Karumbaiah, Shamya; Ocumpaugh, Jaclyn; Baker, Ryan S. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2019
Demographic information often proves useful for finding subpopulations in educational data. Unfortunately, it is often not collected in the log files of online learning systems, which serve as one of the primary sources of data for the Educational Data Mining community. Recent work has sought to address this issue by investigating school-level…

Loong, Esther; Vale, Colleen; Widjaja, Wanty; Herbert, Sandra; Bragg, Leicha A.; Davidson, Aylie – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Despite mathematical reasoning being a proficiency included in mathematics curricula around the world, research has found that primary teachers struggle to understand, teach, and assess mathematical reasoning. A detailed rubric involving the three reasoning actions of analysing, generalising and justifying at five proficiency levels was refined…

Kennedy, Tierney – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This article reports on the effectiveness of an intervention using conceptual change approaches within challenging tasks, on the mathematics gains for low-performing year 3-6 students in in six primary schools. Quantitative data from PAT-Maths testing for each year showed a consistently large effect size of 0.7 compared to expected gain data from…

Getenet, Seyum; Fanshawe, Melissa – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Considered by many as a source of valuable data and a potential to improve mathematics education, a significant amount of studies have been conducted on The National Assessment Program -- Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test results. This study is a systematic literature review of 86 peer-reviewed journal articles published between 2008 and 2017 to…

McCormick, Melody – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
There have been many attempts to reform mathematics teaching in Australia to encourage teachers to use more cognitively demanding tasks that focus on problem solving and reasoning. However, there is limited specific advice for teachers on how best to do this. This paper reports on one set of survey items that examines 52 teachers' responses to…

Lachapelle, Cathy Pauline; Oh, Yoonkyung; Cunningham, Christine M. – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
We present main effects of treatment and moderating effects of student background on science and engineering outcomes for grades 3-5 children participating in an engineering intervention. Data is from a large-scale randomized-controlled trial of two matched pairs (intervention and comparison) of engineering units. The intervention curriculum…

Orellana, Pelusa; Navarro, Marianela; Baldwin, Paula – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
Lack of validated research tools in Spanish-speaking countries has limited the extent to which educational research can expand. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the exploration of affective factors in reading. The need for research on reading and reading motivation in Latin American countries calls for valid, reliable tools to…

Tutwiler, Michael Shane; McCoach, D. Betsy; Hamilton, Rashea; Siegle, Del – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
In this study, we use large-scale, longitudinal data to model the growth in student reading across 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in three states using multi-level models for change (Singer & Willett, 2003) to fit individual growth models for students nested in schools and districts. Students who were identified as gifted had 3rd grade reading scores…

Singh, Malkeet; Dunn, Hugh H. – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
The Every Student Succeed Act (ESSA) brings significant changes as well as opportunities for schools to improve their students' academic outcomes. One proposed regulation is for states to analyze the performance of student subgroups separately in order to show how states are levelling the playing field over time to ensure educational equity. This…

MacDonald, Amy; Carmichael, Colin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
International research suggests that early mathematical competences predicts later mathematical outcomes. In this paper, we build on our previous study of young children's mathematical competencies (MacDonald & Carmichael, 2015) to explore the relationship between mathematical competencies at 4-5 years, as measured by teacher ratings, and…

Fletcher, Anna – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
Contemporary learning in Australia necessitates that students develop the capability to play an active role in their own learning. Yet, the student's role as an active agent in the learning process has not been fully examined. Drawing on the notion of assessment as generations informed by conflicting theoretical viewpoints, this paper explores how…

Estrada, Peggy; Wang, Haiwen – Grantee Submission, 2013
For English learners (ELs), reclassifying to fluent English proficient (RFEP) signifies reaching a milestone indicating the ability to function in mainstream classes without support. Little is known about the discrepancy between the number of ELs who meet reclassification criteria and the number who are reclassified as fluent English proficient,…

Bao, Lei; Stephens, Max – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
A modified form of Lesson Study was used to deliver several lessons over two weeks to develop students' relational thinking and to improve teachers' knowledge of this thinking. Fifteen students in a multi-grade 4, 5 & 6 classroom were surveyed and interviewed using true/false sentence and open number problems involving one unknown number…
