The construct of identity is increasingly recognized as a dominant and determining aspect in learning mathematics.

Galliher, Renee V.; McLean, Kate C.; Syed, Moin – Developmental Psychology, 2017
Historically, identity researchers have placed greater emphasis on processes of identity development ("how" people develop their identities) and less on the content of identity ("what" the identity is). The relative neglect of identity content may reflect the lack of a comprehensive framework to guide research. In this article,…

Identity formation is one of the key developmental tasks in adolescence. According to Erikson (1968) experiencing identity uncertainty is normative in adolescence. However, empirical studies investigating identity uncertainty on a daily basis are lacking. Hence, studying individual differences in daily certainty (i.e., identity commitment levels)…

Freed, Allison – Environmental Education Research, 2018
