O'Malley, Patricia; Jenkins, Sandi; Wesley, Brooke; Donehower, Claire; Rabuck, Deidre; Lewis, MEB. – Online Submission, 2013
Research into integrating technology such as iPads into the curriculum for students with disabilities is still new. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of the use of a basic math skill application on an iPad to increase basic math fluency. As part of a classwide academic intervention, the study was conducted with 10 students with…

Greenlees, Jane – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
The use of high-stakes assessment to measure students' mathematical performance has become commonplace in schools all over the world. Such assessment instruments provide national or international comparisons of student (and potentially teacher performance). Each form of assessment is specialised in nature and is characteristic of the culture and…

Loch, Sarah – Australian Association for Research in Education (NJ1), 2012
This paper explores ways that a small group of young adolescents talk about their futures within the context of their schooling at a performing arts secondary school. The data gathered for this project stem from pictures participants drew when asked to "draw themselves in the future" and was enhanced by interviews in which participants spoke about…

Polat-Yaseen, Zeynep – Australian Association for Research in Education (NJ1), 2012
This study was designed for two major goals, which are to describe students' mental models about atom concept from 6th to 8th grade and to compare students' mental models with visual representations of atom in textbooks. Qualitative and quantitative data were collected with 4 open-ended questions including drawings which were quantified using the…

Lin, Grace Hui Chin; Chien, Paul Shih Chieh; Jarvie, Douglas S.; Purcell, John Anthony; Perkins, Lawrence Larry – Online Submission, 2012
This paper argues that all research should be based on humanistic pedagogies with educational functions. While conducting research associated with issues of teaching English as a foreign language (EFL), researchers should pay attention to whether the samples have also been well educated. This study emphasizes that when focusing on significances of…

Loong, Esther Yook-Kin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2010
This paper presents the results of a survey conducted with students (N=97) whose teachers have used the Web in their mathematics classes. The survey looked at students' attitudes towards learning mathematics and their responses to the use of the Internet for learning mathematics. Factor analyses were used to determine the constructs that underlie…

Parish, Linda – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2010
If the ability to reason proportionally seems to be a good indication of likely success in further mathematical pursuits (Lamon, 1999), how do children develop this ability, and how can teachers facilitate this? In this present study, six ratio/rates task-based assessment questions were trialled on ten students from Grades 5 to 9 in an attempt to…

Roane, Warren – Online Submission, 2010
The Texas Projection Measure (TPM) has grown out of the state's need to meet the requirements of No Child Left Behind (NCLB). An examination of the state's method of predicting 8th grade mathematics scores reveals that several factors have been ignored in the process of developing the model, including assumptions in its underlying statistical…

Jack, Brady Michael; Liu, Chia-Ju; Chiu, Hoan-Lin; Shymansky, James A. – Online Submission, 2009
This proposal presents the results of a case study involving five 8th grade Taiwanese classes, two mathematics and three science classes. These classes used a new method of testing called confidence wagering. This paper advocates the position that confidence wagering can predict the accuracy of a student's test answer selection during…

Feng, Mingyu; Beck, Joseph – International Working Group on Educational Data Mining, 2009
Representing domain knowledge is important for constructing educational software, and automated approaches have been proposed to construct and refine such models. In this paper, instead of applying automated and computationally intensive approaches, we simply start with existing hand-constructed transfer models at various levels of granularity and…

Meece, Darrell – Online Submission, 2008
Using publically available data, states coded as "blue" based upon results from the 2004 presidential election were significantly higher in education funding than were states coded as "red." Students in blue states scored significantly higher on outcome measures of math and reading in grades four and eight in 2004 and 2007 than did students in red…

Klecker, Beverly M. – Online Submission, 2008
This study was designed to examine the impact NCLB defined teacher-quality variables (1) major/minor in mathematics, (2) highest academic degree, (3) type of teaching certificate, (4) years taught mathematics (NCLB, 2001) on the mathematics average scale scores of eighth-grade students. The study used a secondary analysis of the 2007 National…

Baker, Eva L. – National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST), 2007
This paper will describe the relationships between research on learning and its application in assessment models and operational systems. These have been topics of research at the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST) for more than 20 years and form a significant part of the intellectual foundation of…

Reznichenko, Nataliya – Online Submission, 2007
This paper focuses on using technology to support mathematics instruction. Technologies such as computers and calculators are widely used in the teaching of mathematics. The educators advocate the use of these tools to reduce tiresome computations and tasks so that class time can be more effectively used for learning mathematics. The purpose of…

Kaya, Osman Nafiz; Dogan, Alev; Gokcek, Nur; Kilic, Ziya; Kilic, Esma – Online Submission, 2007
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of multiple intelligences (MI) teaching approach on 8th Grade students' achievement in and attitudes toward science. This study used a pretest-posttest control group experimental design. While the experimental group (n=30) was taught a unit on acids and bases using MI teaching approach, the…
