Goh, Tan Leng – Quest, 2017
Sitting for extended periods of time is detrimental to children's physical health and may cause off-task behavior in the classroom. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of a classroom physical activity (PA) program, TAKE 10!®, on children's PA and on-task behavior. Participants in the program included 137 children from six classes…

Singh, Rashmi; Kosko, Karl W. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
This study is focused on the structure of equivalence problem to probe the evolution from operational to relational view of students' understanding of the equals sign. We propose a modified construct map which incorporates the intermediate levels in such a transition which were previously ignored. Our findings suggest that the structure of number…

Sarabi, M. K.; Gafoor, K. Abdul – Online Submission, 2017
There is increasing realization that mathematics-related self-efficacy expectations are a strong predictor of an array of significant mathematics outcomes. It is also evident that the curricular practice in schools largely neglects development of a student understanding in the unique language of mathematics. Consequently, this study probes how…

Sarabi, M. K.; Gafoor, K. Abdul – Online Submission, 2017
Difficulties in mathematics learning are a multi-faceted issue and the role of language in it is crucial. Language of mathematics includes mathematics text, discourse in classroom and language used in evaluation situations with its specific verbal, symbolic expressions, structure and function. Ambiguity arising from the difference between formal…

Hardcastle, Joseph; Herrmann-Abell, Cari F.; DeBoer, George E. – Grantee Submission, 2017
Can student performance on computer-based tests (CBT) and paper-and-pencil tests (PPT) be considered equivalent measures of student knowledge? States and school districts are grappling with this question, and although studies addressing this question are growing, additional research is needed. We report on the performance of students who took…

Hardcastle, Joseph; Herrmann-Abell, Cari F.; DeBoer, George E. – Grantee Submission, 2017
Energy is a critically important topic in the K-12 science curriculum, with many applications in the earth, physical, and life sciences and in engineering and technology. To meet the challenges associated with teaching energy, new tools and assessment instruments are needed. In this work we describe the development of a three-tier assessment…

Hardiman, Mariale; JohnBull, Ranjini Mahinda; Carran, Deborah – Grantee Submission, 2017
Strong correlational evidence suggests that involvement in the arts improves students' academic outcomes and memory of learning events (e.g., Peppler et al., 2014; Robinson, 2013; Scripps & Paradis, 2014). It is unclear, however, whether the improved outcomes are the result of general exposure to the arts, arts integrated into content…
