Based on Confucius' saying "A word may change your mind, an emotion may change your life and a person may change you", our emotions affect our learning if we take life as a process of learning. Some of our learning on which we are successful and unsuccessful are student characteristics. Effective properties are one of the characteristics…

Panayiotou, Anastasia; Kyriakides, Leonidas; Christoforidou, Margarita; Creemers, Bert; Televantou, Ioulia – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
This paper advocates the use of the Dynamic Approach (DA) to promote Student Self-Assessment (SSA) for formative purposes. DA is based on the assumption that professional development should be differentiated to meet teachers' needs, while engaging them into guided critical reflection. A sample of 45 teachers was randomly allocated into two groups:…

Choi, Jinnie; Walters, Alyssa – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
Engaging students in self-reflection about their learning performance is a potentially promising pedagogical approach for supporting math learning. However, it is unclear how models for math learning in regular classrooms translate in a virtual environment. The purpose of this paper is to (a) analyze rich assessment data from virtual schools to…

Parish, Linda – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
This case-study explores the impact of a 12 week in-class intervention designed to encourage creativity, inquiry and exploration as a normal and expected part of mathematics lessons, with a particular focus on supporting the learning of highly capable and gifted students. Fred is a mathematically highly capable grade five student whose personal…

Downton, Ann; Wright, Vince – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
This study explored the potential of a rich assessment task to reveal students' multiplicative thinking in respect to a hypothetical learning trajectory. Thirty pairs of students in grades 5 and 6 attempted the task. Twenty-two pairs applied multiplicative structure to find the number of items in arrays. However counting and computational errors…

Reeger, Adam; Gaasedelen, Owen; Welch, Catherine; Dunbar, Stephen – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs) are increasingly being used in evaluations of teacher effectiveness. This study investigates two properties of SGPs: 1) SGP sensitivity to reference group characteristics such as sample size, free and reduced lunch (FRL) status, and English language learner (ELL) status; and 2) variation in score changes across…

Long, Bernadette – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
This paper reports on an intervention program, "Prepare 2 Learn", that was designed taking into account a range of components from other successful intervention programs. The program is focussed on year 6 students from a school in Melbourne, Australia, who are falling approximately 6 months behind with the hope that extra help at an…

Crossley, Scott; Liu, Ran; McNamara, Danielle – Grantee Submission, 2017
A number of studies have demonstrated links between linguistic knowledge and performance in math. Studies examining these links in first language speakers of English have traditionally relied on correlational analyses between linguistic knowledge tests and standardized math tests. For second language (L2) speakers, the majority of studies have…

McLeskey, James; Waldron, Nancy L. – Online Submission, 2011
Issues related to full-time inclusive programs have been particularly controversial for elementary students with learning disabilities. The nature of this controversy has changed substantially over the last decade, given the emphasis on high stakes accountability for all students in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act and IDEA 2004. In spite of…

Wong, Monica – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2010
Learning pathways capture the development of competence in a mathematical domain. They have been developed from empirical studies in the areas of mental computation and emergent numeracy concepts. These pathways afford teachers the opportunity to identify students' current levels of understanding, antecedent understandings and the steps that are…

Witcher, Melissa; Feng, Jay – Online Submission, 2010
Current educational reform in K-12 schools in this nation is much driven by the No Child Left Behind Act. One central goal of NCLB is to "bring all students (including special education children) up to grade level in reading and math, to close the achievement gap and to hold schools accountable for results"( Varied innovative…
