West, Stephen G.; Hughes, Jan N.; Kim, Han Joe; Bauer, Shelby S. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2019
The Motivation for Educational Attainment (MEA) questionnaire, developed to assess facets related to early adolescents' motivation to complete high school, has a bifactor structure with a large general factor and three smaller orthogonal specific factors (teacher expectations, peer aspirations, value of education). This prospective validity study…

Vanwynsberghe, Griet; Vanlaar, Gudrun; Van Damme, Jan; De Fraine, Bieke – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2019
The purpose of this study was to conduct a direct replication of the study of Bressoux and Bianco of 2004 regarding long-term effects of teachers in primary education on language and mathematics achievement of students. They found a short-term effect of the teacher in the same grade, but they did not find a long-term effect of the teacher of the…

Adams, Tempestt; Robinson, Derrick; Covington, Azure; Talley-Matthews, Sheikia – Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, 2017
The purpose of this article is to assess areas of opportunity and access for students of color to participate in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine pipeline (STEMM). Using a Critical Race Theory framework, this position paper reviews occupational outcomes and stratification in STEMM fields, examines the pertinence of…

Shanley, Lina – Educational Researcher, 2016
Accurately measuring and modeling academic achievement growth is critical to support educational policy and practice. Using a nationally representative longitudinal data set, this study compared various models of mathematics achievement growth on the basis of both practical utility and optimal statistical fit and explored relationships within and…

Aksu, Gökhan; Koruklu, Nermin – Eurasian Journal of Educational Research, 2015
Problem Statement: One of the main goals of education is to nurture individuals who know and improve themselves; who is well educated and have scientific perspective; who have developed communal coherency level; who are active, democratic and respectful to human rights. At the present time, according to an up to date mentality in mathematics…

Diniz, Eva; da Rosa Piccolo, Luciane; de Paula Couto, Maria Clara Pinheiro; Salles, Jerusa Fumagalli; Helena Koller, Silvia – Educational Psychology, 2014
This study investigated children and adolescents' school performance over time focusing on two variables that may influence it: developmental context and gender. The sample comprised 627 participants (M[subscript age]?=?11.13, SD?=?1.8), 51% of them female, from grade one to eight, living either with family (n?=?474) or in care institutions…

Hedges, Larry V.; Hedberg, E. C. – Evaluation Review, 2013
Background: Cluster-randomized experiments that assign intact groups such as schools or school districts to treatment conditions are increasingly common in educational research. Such experiments are inherently multilevel designs whose sensitivity (statistical power and precision of estimates) depends on the variance decomposition across levels.…

Watts, Tyler W.; Duncan, Greg J.; Chen, Meichu; Claessens, Amy; Davis-Kean, Pamela E.; Duckworth, Kathryn; Engel, Mimi; Siegler, Robert; Susperreguy, Maria I. – Child Development, 2015
Despite research demonstrating a strong association between early and later mathematics achievement, few studies have investigated mediators of this association. Using longitudinal data (n = 1,362), this study tested the extent to which mathematics self-concepts, school placement, executive functioning, and proficiency in fractions and division…

Bailey, Drew H.; Siegler, Robert S.; Geary, David C. – Developmental Science, 2014
Recent findings that earlier fraction knowledge predicts later mathematics achievement raise the question of what predicts later fraction knowledge. Analyses of longitudinal data indicated that whole number magnitude knowledge in first grade predicted knowledge of fraction magnitudes in middle school, controlling for whole number arithmetic…
