Md. Yunus, Aida Suraya; Mohd Ayub, Ahmad Fauzi; Hock, Tan Tong – International Journal of Instruction, 2019
Geometry is one of the basic skills to be mastered in Malaysian mathematics education. However, there is not much information on geometry attainment of the elementary school students based on van Hiele's levels. The purpose of this study was to determine the van Hiele's levels of geometric thinking among the elementary school learners. Three…

Mokgwathi, Mathelela Steyn; Graham, Marien Alet; Fraser, William – International Journal of Instruction, 2019
The study investigated the relationship between South African Grade 9 teachers' and learners' perceptions and attitudes with their mathematics achievement. The study used a secondary analysis of the TIMSS 2015 mathematics data, guided by the conceptual framework model of Scheerens (2000). The quantitative data collected through teachers' and…

Pettersen, Andreas; Braeken, Johan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The implementation of mathematical competencies in school curricula requires assessment instruments to be aligned with this new view on mathematical mastery. However, there are concerns over whether existing assessments capture the wide variety of cognitive skills and abilities that constitute mathematical competence. The current study applied an…

Veurink, Norma L.; Sorby, Sheryl A. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2019
Three-dimensional spatial skills are a cognitive ability that have been shown to predict success in engineering. Michigan Tech has been offering a course to help students improve their 3-D spatial skills for more than two decades. In previous studies, students who failed a rotations test and enrolled in the course performed better on a number of…

Foreman-Murray, Lindsay; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
Students' explanations of their mathematical thinking and conclusions have become a greater part of the assessment landscape in recent years. With a sample of 71 fourth-grade students at risk for mathematics learning disabilities, we investigated the relation between student accuracy in comparing the magnitude of fractions and the quality of…

Ma, Wenchao; de la Torre, Jimmy – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2019
Solving a constructed-response item usually requires successfully performing a sequence of tasks. Each task could involve different attributes, and those required attributes may be "condensed" in various ways to produce the responses. The sequential generalized deterministic input noisy "and" gate model is a general cognitive…

Hästö, Peter; Palkki, Riikka; Tuomela, Dimitri; Star, Jon R. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Flexibility is an important element in learning mathematics. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether flexibility in linear equation solving predicts future academic achievement in mathematics and other subjects. Participants were 149 Finnish high-school students. Results show that flexibility was related to grades in both tracks of…

Abu Mokh, Rana; Othman, Ali; Shahbari, Juhaina Awawdeh – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2019
The aim of this study is to examine the mistakes made by students in the use of logical connectives while simplifying algebraic equations and inequalities, and the extent to which teachers are aware of these mistakes and how they assess them. The study was conducted among 50 ninth grade students and 63 practicing teachers of mathematics. The data…

Sjoe, Nina Madsen; Bleses, Dorthe; Dybdal, Line; Tideman, Eva; Kirkeby, Henriette; Sehested, Karen Krag; Nielsen, Hanne; Kreiner, Svend; Jensen, Peter – Early Education and Development, 2019
Sound assessment tools are needed to evaluate effects of mathematics interventions that familiarize children with early mathematics concepts before they enter the formal school system. We developed a short version of an existing early mathematics tool based on analyses of data collected in a nationally representative Danish sample. Research…

Elliott, Leanne; Feigenson, Lisa; Halberda, Justin; Libertus, Melissa E. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Research suggests that individual differences in math abilities correlate with approximate representations of quantity that are supported by a primitive Approximate Number System (ANS). However, relatively little research has addressed the direction of this association in early childhood. Here we examined the development of the ANS and math…

Bell, Courtney A.; Dobbelaer, Marjoleine J.; Klette, Kirsti; Visscher, Adrie – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
Observation systems are increasingly used around the world for a variety of purposes; 2 critical purposes are to understand and to improve teaching. As observation systems differ considerably, individuals must decide what observation system to use. But the field does not have a common specification of an observation system, nor does it have…

Junus, Kasiyah; Suhartanto, Heru; R-Suradijono, Sri Hartati; Santoso, Harry Budi; Sadita, Lia – Journal of Educators Online, 2019
An online discussion forum has the potential to facilitate collaborative learning that improves students' critical thinking. To explain the collaborative online learning experience, the Community of Inquiry (CoI) model has been proposed by a group of researchers. The model captures an in-depth and meaningful collaborative online learning process…
