Falco, Lia D. – Middle School Journal, 2019
Findings from recent studies suggest that students' pathways into mathematics-related careers begin as early as middle school when students are forming lasting self-perceptions of their academic abilities. Middle school is also a time when students begin making choices about future coursework in math, science, and technology that will have…

Vondrová, Nada; Novotná, Jarmila; Havlícková, Radka – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2019
Research has shown that word problem difficulty is influenced by various linguistic, numerical and general variables, but results in this area are inconsistent. This paper focuses on the question of how the order of numerical data, the context, the position of the unknown transformation, and the length of the statement in an additive word problem,…

Carter, Kate – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
Teaching middle school mathematics, I have found that classroom dynamics have a profound impact on the quality of mathematical discussion. Wanting to improve classroom discussion in order to better facilitate both small-group and student-driven learning, I started the school year by randomly grouping students every week for their small groups. I…

Stohlmann, Micah – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Of the four subjects in an integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) approach, mathematics has not received enough focus. This could be in part because mathematics teachers may be apprehensive or unsure about how to implement integrated STEM education in their classrooms. There are benefits to integrated STEM in a…

Hedger, Joseph – National Association of State Boards of Education, 2018
When the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress was released earlier this year, most states learned that their average scores in grades 4 and 8 reading and mathematics remained relatively flat since 2015. More troubling though, students performing at the lowest 10th and 25th percentiles saw a decline in their scores. To confront this…

Dunleavy, Teresa K. – Education Sciences, 2018
This article continues to challenge the robust myth that mathematical smartness is exemplified in individuals who consistently complete mathematics problems quickly and accurately. In so doing, I present a set of counterstories from three students in one ninth-grade Algebra 1 classroom. These students described transformative experiences in their…

Skinner, Rebecca R. – Congressional Research Service, 2018
Assessing the achievement of students in elementary and secondary schools and the nation's educational progress is fundamental to informing education policy approaches. Congressional interest in this area includes and extends beyond the annual assessments administered by states to comply with the educational accountability requirements of Title…

Sulis, Isabella; Toland, Michael D. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2017
Item response theory (IRT) models are the main psychometric approach for the development, evaluation, and refinement of multi-item instruments and scaling of latent traits, whereas multilevel models are the primary statistical method when considering the dependence between person responses when primary units (e.g., students) are nested within…

Wells, Jenny C.; Sheehey, Patricia H.; Sheehey, Michael – Beyond Behavior, 2017
Self-regulation skills have been found to be an important predictor of achievement in mathematics. Teaching a student to regulate his or her behavior during independent math work sessions using self-monitoring of performance with self-graphing focuses him or her on academic performance and results in increases in productivity and math proficiency.…

Duckor, Brent; Holmberg, Carrie; Becker, Joanne Rossi – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2017
Research on teacher professional learning has shown that formative assessment can improve student learning more than most instructional practices. Empirical evidence indicates that thoughtfully implemented formative assessment practices improve students' learning, increase students' scores, and narrow achievement gaps between low-achieving…

Accardo, Amy L.; Kuder, S. Jay – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2017
Mr. Perez and Mrs. Peterson co-teach a ninth-grade algebra class. Perez and Peterson's class includes four students with individualized education programs (IEPs). In response to legislation, such as the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act (2001) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (2006), an increasing number of students…

Ebby, Caroline B.; Petit, Marjorie – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2017
A learning trajectory describes the progression of student thinking and strategies over time in terms of sophistication of both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. Currently, learning trajectories exist in the research literature for many mathematical domains, including counting, addition and subtraction, multiplicative thinking,…

Polikoff, Morgan S.; Greene, Jay P.; Huffman, Kevin – Education Next, 2017
Since the 2001 passage of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), test-based accountability has been an organizing principle--perhaps "the" organizing principle--of efforts to improve American schools. But lately, accountability has been under fire from many critics, including Common Core opponents and those calling for more multifaceted…
