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,…

Gleason, Philip; Crissey, Sarah; Chojnacki, Greg; Zukiewicz, Marykate; Silva, Tim; Costelloe, Sarah; O'Reilly, Fran – National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance, 2019
As part of their improvement efforts, schools have increasingly turned to the use of data to improve instruction. This is due in part to the increasing availability of student assessment data throughout the school year. The strategy of using assessment and other data to inform teachers' instruction is often called data-driven instruction (DDI).…

Cellitti, Jessica; Wright, Christopher – Science and Children, 2019
One of the guiding principles highlighted in "A Framework for K-12 Science Education" (NRC 2012) states that "children are born investigators," claiming that students construct their own understanding of the natural world even before they learn about it in formal learning settings. Even if students lack a thorough…
