Ciftci, S. Koza – Online Submission, 2019
In this study, the effect of mathematics teacher candidates' locus of control on math anxiety was tested, along with the effects of gender, achievement and class level moderators. The study was carried out according to a causal design in which locus of control was taken as an independent variable, while math anxiety was taken as the dependent…

Deieso, Donato; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Past research has revealed that, relative to primary-school students, high-school students have less-positive attitudes to mathematics and perceive their classroom environments and teacher--student relationships less favourably. This study involved the transition experience of 541 students in 47 classes in 15 primary (year 7) and secondary (year…

Moreno-García, Elena; García-Santillán, Arturo; Molchanova, Violetta S.; Campero, Edgar Plata – European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2018
The purpose of the study is to determine a latent structure of variables that explain the level of anxiety towards mathematics of high school students based on the interaction that the student has with the tasks, courses and math exams. For this purpose, the RMARS mathematical anxiety scale was used, which has a Likert-type scaling. The instrument…

Muwonge, Charles Magoba; Ssenyonga, Joseph; Kwarikunda, Diana – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2018
Guided by the control-value theory of achievement emotions, we examined the relationship between cognitive appraisals (i.e. self-efficacy and task value), learning anxiety, test anxiety, enjoyment and motivation towards learning mathematics among 302 students in their first year of lower secondary school in Uganda. Students were randomly selected…

Ryan, Maria; Fitzmaurice, Olivia – Adults Learning Mathematics, 2017
Admitting that one is "no good at mathematics" or "hates mathematics" is a common admission among student cohorts. For mature students who harbour a strong dislike of mathematics, these feelings can be exacerbated when they are faced with having to do an obligatory service mathematics module as part of a programme of study. For…
