Tan, Cheng Yong – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2018
The present study examined indirect effects of principal leadership on the mathematics achievement of 254,475 15-year-old students from 10,313 schools in 32 OECD economies. Results showed that the students could be divided into three categories ("Disadvantaged," "Average," and "Privileged") differing in levels of…

Abrahamson, Dor – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
Design research is a broad, practice-based approach to investigating problems of education. This approach can catalyze the development of learning theory by fostering opportunities for transformational change in scholars' interpretation of instructional interactions. Surveying a succession of design-research projects, I explain how challenges in…

Hassler, Bjoern; Hennessy, Sara; Knight, Simon; Connolly, Teresa – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2014
Much of the current literature related to Open Educational Resource (OER) development and practice concentrates on higher education, although a growing body of work is also emerging for the primary and secondary school sectors. This article examines the user perspectives of teachers and teacher educators, regarding: discovery of teaching…

Gripton, Catherine – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2020
Within the wealth of research on 'ability' in education, there is a missing perspective: the perspective of the child. Whilst 'ability' informed practices such as 'ability' grouping are commonplace in the UK, how these are experienced by the young child has previously received only limited attention in research. Using case study evidence, this…

Falloon, Garry – Teaching and Learning Research Initiative, 2017
Despite successive waves of technological innovation being rapidly adopted by schools, teaching methods and curriculum designs have been slow to evolve in response to the affordances offered by an increasing array of digital devices. This project explored student thinking, problem solving and collaboration when using digital tablets (iPads) for a…

Drageset, Ove Gunnar – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Mathematical discourse in the classroom has been conceptualised in several ways, from relatively general patterns such as initiation-response-evaluation (Cazden in "Classroom discourse: the language of teaching and learning," Heinemann, London, 1988; Mehan in "Learning lessons: social organization in the classroom." Cambridge,…

Watt, Helen M. G., Ed.; Richardson, Paul W., Ed.; Smith, Kari, Ed. – Cambridge University Press, 2017
Many studies of teacher motivation have been conducted in different contexts over time. However, until fairly recently there has not been a reliable measure available to allow comparisons across samples and settings. This has resulted in an abundance of findings which cannot be directly compared or synthesised. The FIT-Choice instrument offers the…

Clapham, Andrew – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2015
Sir Michael Wilshaw, the head of the Office for Standards in Education (OfSTED), declared a "new wave" of Local Area Under-performance Inspections (LAUI) of schools "denying children the standard of education they deserve". This paper examines how the threat of LAUI played out over three mathematics lessons taught by a teacher…

Huckstep, Peter – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2007
The value of any subject on a crowded, contested and compulsory curriculum is, or at least should be, open to debate. More importantly, when different subjects are prioritized over others, the justification for the ranking of such subjects should also be submitted to sustained enquiry. Mathematics enjoys a prestigious place in the English National…

Nesmith, Suzanne J. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2008
The existence of two distinct cultures within our society, the arts and the sciences, was introduced by physicist C. P. Snow in his 1959 Reed Lecture at Cambridge University and was further illuminated by Snow in "The Two Cultures, a Second Look" (1964). Lamenting the existence of the cultural chasm while also fearing a widening of the…

Bramley, Tom – Cambridge Assessment, 2014
The aim of this study was to compare models of assessment structure for achieving differentiation between examinees of different levels of attainment in the GCSE in England. GCSEs are high-stakes curriculum-based public examinations taken by 16 year olds at the end of compulsory schooling. The context for the work was an intense period of debate…

Petocz, Peter; Reid, Anna – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2005
Mathematics curriculum at the tertiary level is located within a range of social and cultural theories, and is often constructed by academics seeking to promulgate a particular view of mathematics. We argue that such a curriculum should incorporate a real acknowledgement of the different ways in which students understand the nature of mathematics…

Hunter, Jodie – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2017
In recent years there has been an increased focus on the need for teachers to develop learning communities where all students have opportunities to engage in interactive discourse. However, there are few studies that focus on student perceptions and accounts of mathematical reasoning in classrooms with interactive mathematical talk as a focus of…
