Karademir, Cigdem Aldan; Deveci, Ozge – Online Submission, 2019
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…

Chen, Guanhua; Shen, Ji; Jiang, Shiyan; Barth-Cohen, Lauren; Eltoukhy, Moataz – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
In the core of computational thinking (CT) practices is problem-solving. However, there is little research on connecting CT with problem solving processes. We developed a computer-based assessment on CT that can log students' problem-solving processes and administered it to a group of fifth graders as a pre- and post- measure of a robotics…

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…

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,…

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…

Attard, Catherine; Edwards-Groves, Christine; Grootenboer, Peter – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Teaching mathematics involves a lot of talking, and dialogic practices are central to most pedagogical practices in mathematics classrooms. Furthermore, for mathematical processes such as 'reasoning', 'explaining' and 'mathematical thinking' to be developed, there is a need for rich and robust dialogic interactions in the classroom. In this paper…

Lomas, Laurinda – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This paper proposes structural modification of the Clarke and Hollingsworth (2002) Interconnected Model of Teacher Professional Growth (IMTPG) based on results from doctoral research that studied the changes in mathematical knowledge and beliefs of two Year 5/6 teachers as they implemented a four-week, innovative curriculum unit. These inclusions…

Prodromou, Theodosia; Frederiksen, Nick – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Mathematics anxiety is a known problem in mathematics education. This paper reports on a study looking at mathematics anxiety in a primary school classroom (year 6). Students were given a mathematics test and a following anxiety questionnaire to assess their levels of anxiety, to try to better understand issues that caused anxiety and to…

Fry, Kym; Hillman, Judith – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Guided inquiry pedagogy is gaining recognition for promoting deep learning as students connect concepts, understandings and meanings to defend and justify their mathematical ideas. Research describes how it promotes the development of deep understandings, yet the approach can seem at odds with explicit teaching pedagogies that show potential for a…

Herrmann-Abell, Cari F.; Hardcastle, Joseph; DeBoer, George E. – Grantee Submission, 2018
We compared students' performance on a paper-based test (PBT) and three computer-based tests (CBTs). The three computer-based tests used different test navigation and answer selection features, allowing us to examine how these features affect student performance. The study sample consisted of 9,698 fourth through twelfth grade students from across…

Orrill, Chandra Hawley; Brown, Rachael Eriksen; Burke, James P.; Millett, John; Nagar, Gili Gal; Park, Jinsook; Weiland, Travis – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
In this study we extend our prior exploration focused on the extent to which middle school teachers appropriately identified proportional situations and whether there were relationships between attributes of the teachers and their ability to identify proportional situations. For this study, we analyzed both a larger dataset (n = 32) and two…

Hambacher, Elyse L.; Bondy, Elizabeth – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
This paper draws on the literature on effective African American teachers of African American students to investigate the enactments of culturally relevant critical teacher care (CRCTC) in two fifth-grade teachers' classrooms in a large, urban school district. Using interview and observation data, the findings illustrate the teachers' knowledge of…
