Hunter, Jodie; Jones, Ian – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
We administered specially-designed, free-response mathematics tasks to primary students (N = 583, ages five to 12 years old). Our focus was on whether (i) the children's responses could be reliably assessed, and (ii) the responses could provide insights into children's mathematical thinking. We used a contemporary comparative judgement technique,…

Djambong, Takam; Freiman, Viktor – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2016
While today's schools in several countries, like Canada, are about to bring back programming to their curricula, a new conceptual angle, namely one of computational thinking, draws attention of researchers. In order to understand the articulation between computational thinking tasks in one side, student's targeted skills, and the types of problems…

Herrmann-Abell, Cari F.; DeBoer, George E. – Grantee Submission, 2016
Understanding students' misconceptions and how they change is an essential part of supporting students in their science learning. This paper presents results from distractor-driven multiple-choice assessments that target students' misconceptions about energy. Over 20,000 elementary, middle and high school students from across the U.S. participated…

Herrmann-Abell, Cari F.; DeBoer, George E. – Grantee Submission, 2016
Energy is a core concept in the teaching of science. Therefore, it is important to know how students' thinking about energy develops so that elementary, middle, and high school students can be appropriately supported in their understanding of energy. This study tests the validity of a proposed theoretical model of students' growth of understanding…

Bahena, Sofia; Gehlbach, Hunter; Schueler, Beth; McIntyre, Joe – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
Although parental self-efficacy has been linked to positive parenting strategies, the variability in measures and conceptualizations presents a limitation in the literature (Jones & Prinz, 2001). In this paper, we propose a new scale developed using (Author Citation) framework and pilot tested with an online panel of parents (n = 636). Our…
