Zmood, Simone – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
Concern is often raised about the performance of Australia's "best" mathematics students on international studies, relative to past students and other countries. An important consideration in developing strategies to ensure our most proficient mathematics students experience learning growth is an understanding of the distribution and…

Geiger, Vince – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
In this paper, preliminary research into an effective approach to numeracy task design is described and analysed using a conceptual framework based on two dimensions--one related to the nature of numeracy and the other concerned with the characteristics of effective mathematical tasks. A case that documents one teacher's attempt to create a…

Christensen, Rhonda; Knezek, Gerald – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2016
Mobile learning readiness as a new aspect of technology integration for classroom teachers is confirmed through the findings of this study to be significantly aligned with well-established measures based on older information technologies. The Mobile Learning Readiness Survey (MLRS) generally exhibits the desirable properties of step-wise increases…

Aladjem, Ruthi; Hardof, Sharon – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2016
Personal information management (PIM) is a research field that examines the activities by which users save, organize and retrieve personal information items. PIM is a one of the essential new literacies for learners in the 21st century. This paper reports results from a pilot study that explored PIM practices and strategies of K-12 students, on…

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…

Lee, Yeung – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
This paper reports an investigation of assessing students' information literacy (IL) in a naturalistic classroom environment by using a set of rubrics. A total of 72 lessons from 15 classrooms in Hong Kong were examined. Results indicate that the rubric is generally valid and usable in assessing students' IL skills but three more attributes which…

Morningstar, Mary E.; Kurth, Jennifer – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
A decade of least restrictive environments data from the annual Reports to Congress was analyzed to examine trends in placement practices between 2000-2011 for students with significant disabilities. Educational placement trends were calculated using an log ratio inclusion index, and students with significant disabilities were compared to groups…

Stephens, Maria; Neidorf, Teresa A.; Lasseter, Austin; Zhang, Jizhi – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
This paper describes the extent to which the science content in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is similar to that in the science assessment frameworks for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) at the middle school level. Using NAEP as a common…

Morgan, Patricia S.; Demir, Kadir – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
The racial and ethnic makeup of the United States is in constant flux and is expected to experience substantial increases over the next four decades. The problem the American educational system face is attempting to problematize race/racism in its educational system and creating a system to counteract that. The disparity we face grows as teacher…

Mathis, Corey A.; Siverling, Emilie A.; Glancy, Aran W.; Moore, Tamara J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017
One of the fundamental practices identified in Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is argumentation, which has been researched in P-12 science education for the previous two decades but has yet to be studied within the context of P-12 engineering education. This research explores how elementary and middle school science teachers incorporated…

Owings, William A.; Kaplan, Leslie S.; Volman, Monique – Journal of Education Finance, 2015
Using an equity perspective, this article compares the education systems of the United States and the Netherlands. Existing data examining student demographics, the organizational structures, curricula, funding, and student outcomes are examined. The Netherlands appears to be getting a "bigger bang for their buck." We make the case that…
