Kiru, Elisheba W. – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2018
There is an urgent need to understand how often teachers use information and communication technologies (ICT) in mathematics instruction. This information can provide vital links that can help stakeholders make connections about ICT use in mathematics instruction and student learning experiences with ICT. Scholars in the field have reported on the…

Nie, Youyan; Lau, Shun; Liau, Albert K. – Learning and Individual Differences, 2011
Emphasizing task importance, which is regarded as a way of motivating engaged behavior, may increase an individual's anxiety. The present research investigated whether academic self-efficacy could moderate the maladaptive relation between task importance and test anxiety. 1978 and 1670 Grade 9 Singaporean students participated in a survey related…

Stankov, Lazar; Morony, Suzanne; Lee, Yim Ping – Educational Psychology, 2014
Recent efforts to identify non-cognitive predictors of academic achievement and school success have largely focused on self-constructs such as self-efficacy, self-concept and anxiety that are measured with respect to a specific domain (e.g. mathematics). We extend the measurement of the non-cognitive realm in education to incorporate both social…

Ng, Betsy L. L.; Liu, W. C.; Wang, John C. K. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The present study focused on an in-depth understanding of student motivation and self-regulated learning in mathematics and science through cluster analysis. It examined the different learning profiles of motivational beliefs and self-regulatory strategies in relation to perceived teacher autonomy support, basic psychological needs (i.e. autonomy,…

Lay, Yoon Fah; Ng, Khar Thoe; Chong, Poi Su – Asia-Pacific Education Researcher, 2015
Psychologists believe that a student's motivation is influenced by a number of values/beliefs, interests and attitudes that can be positive or negative in their effects. Highly positively motivated students would believe that the task is of value (value beliefs), also with high expectations that they would achieve success (expectancy and…

Stankov, Lazar; Lee, Jihyun; Luo, Wenshu; Hogan, David J. – Learning and Individual Differences, 2012
In this paper we report the results from a study that assessed confidence together with scales measuring self-belief--i.e., self-efficacy, different kinds of self-concepts, and anxiety--among the 15-year old students from Singapore. A distinct confidence factor was identified in the domains of mathematics (N = 1940) and English (N = 1786). Our…

Lau, Shun; Liem, Arief Darmanegara; Nie, Youyan – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2008
Background: The expectancy-value and achievement goal theories are arguably the two most dominant theories of achievement motivation in the contemporary literature. However, very few studies have examined how the constructs derived from both theories are related to deep learning. Moreover, although there is evidence demonstrating the links between…

Morony, Suzanne; Kleitman, Sabina; Lee, Yim Ping; Stankov, Lazar – International Journal of Educational Research, 2013
This study investigates the structure and cross-cultural (in)variance of mathematical self-beliefs in relation to mathematics achievement in two world regions: Confucian Asia (Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan) and Europe (Denmark, The Netherlands, Finland, Serbia and Latvia). This is done both pan-culturally and at a multigroup-level,…

Luo, Wenshu; Paris, Scott G.; Hogan, David; Luo, Zhiqiang – Contemporary Educational Psychology, 2011
This study investigated how achievement goals are combined to affect students' learning. We used a multiple goals perspective, based on mastery (i.e., mastery approach) and performance (including both approach and avoidance components) goals, to examine the achievement goal patterns of 1697 Singapore Secondary 3 students in their math study. Four…

Yoo, Yang Seok – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2018
Numerous studies have attributed gender difference in mathematics achievement to various sociocultural influences. Singapore is a country of higher gender equality as represented in the Global Gender Gap Index and Singaporean girls perform as well or higher than boys in international mathematics assessments. This study develops a conceptual model…

Chang, Chun-Yen; Lin, Pei-Ling – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
This study investigated the relationship between gifted students' academic self-concept (ASC) and academic achievement (AC) in earth science with internationally representative high-school students from the third International Earth Science Olympiad (IESO) held in Taiwan in 2009. The results of regression analysis indicated that IESO students' ASC…

Student self-assessment engages the students in purposeful reflection about what they are learning and how they are learning it. This study investigated the perceptions of students and teachers towards the students' self-assessment ability in two Singapore primary schools. A total of 75 students were taught how to use self-assessment. Eighteen…
