Benton, Tom; Leech, Tony; Hughes, Sarah – Cambridge Assessment, 2020
In the context of examinations, the phrase "maintaining standards" usually refers to any activity designed to ensure that it is no easier (or harder) to achieve a given grade in one year than in another. Specifically, it tends to mean activities associated with setting examination grade boundaries. Benton et al (2020) describes a method…

Beltrán-Pellicer, Pablo; Godino, Juan D. – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2020
A subject of growing interest in mathematics education is the affective domain and its effects on the teaching and learning processes, giving rise to different models of its components and conditioning factors. In this paper, we apply the ontological and semiotic categories from the Onto-Semiotic Approach (OSA) to research in mathematics…

Black, Laura; Williams, Julian; Choudry, Sophina; Pickard-Smith, Kelly; Ryan, Bethany – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2019
This paper offers a new methodology for researching children's identifications in the early primary phase that makes visible the 'seeds' of academic dis-/identities, which typically flower later in adolescence. It focuses on the 'case' of mathematical identifications (MI) to exemplify how children come to dis/identify from the academic curriculum…
