The IDM combines psychological biases on frame-of-reference effects with sociological foci on ability stratification. This combination is hypothesized to lead to working-class children having more positive math self-beliefs and…

Bamber, Philip; Lewin, David; White, Morgan – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2018

This paper tests the thesis that…

van der Vleuten, Maaike; Jaspers, Eva; Maas, Ineke; van der Lippe, Tanja – Educational Studies, 2016
This study aims to explain why boys and girls in secondary education choose different educational tracks.

Gender ideology can affect educational choices by influencing (1) how adolescents evaluate…
