Romberg, Thomas A. – Educational Psychologist, 2010
Merlin C. Wittrock was a friend and colleague who influenced me and many other contemporary mathematics educators on how students learn. In this article I summarize my interactions with Merl beginning in 1965, and how over the following half-century he influenced my thinking on student learning for understanding and, in turn, on how to design…

Osborne, Alan R., Ed. – 1975
This journal issue is devoted to review and analysis of 15 reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). The reports reviewed concern achievement of students at various grade levels, nonintellective correlates of under- and overachievement, correlates of attitudes toward mathematics, teacher effectiveness,…

Begle, Edward G. – 1972
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). This one discusses the attempts to determine which of many variables had significant predictive power for student achievement on various mathematical scales. (NLSMA Reports No. 4-7 and 9 provide background information on the variables and…

Sowder, Larry – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1974
Reports discriminate analyses using data from several National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA) measures for two groups from the NLSMA Y-population, high and low geometry achievers. The analysis correctly classified from 75 percent to 95 percent of the groups, depending on the measure used. (JP)

Bridgham, Robert G. – 1972
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). Its focus is the effect of new mathematics curricula on achievement in science. Those students from the Y-Population (grades 7-11, see NLSMA Reports Nos. 5 and 9) who had taken the College Board science tests in biology, chemistry, or physics…

Crosswhite, F. Joe – 1972
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). This report examines measures of attitude, self-concept, and anxiety as outcomes of mathematics instruction for students in grades 4-12. (NLSMA Reports Nos. 1-7 and 9 provide background information on the measures and the population.) Specific…

Wilson, James W., Ed.; Begle, Edward G., Ed. – 1972
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). This one is a summary of NLSMA Reports Nos. 21-25, presented as an aid in searching for patterns across various correlates, various mathematical achievement measures, and various samples. In the original analyses, students were grouped into…

Wilson, James W., Ed.; Begle, Edward G., Ed. – 1972
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). It is a listing of correlation coefficients where each mathematical scale has been paired with each psychological scale. (See NLSMA Reports Nos. 4-6 for a description of these scales.) Besides each correlation matrix, a rotated factor matrix is…

Wilson, James W. – 1972
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). Further, it is of the subseries that analyzed data for the purpose of identifying differential patterns of mathematics achievement which are correlated with different textbook series. This particular report considers comparisons made for the…

Ortiz-Franco, Luis – Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, 1990
Examines reliability of seven mathematical abilities tests among Spanish- and English-speaking pre-algebra Hispanic students. Students tested in divergent thinking, general reasoning, field-dependence, math achievement, math prose reading, syllogistic reasoning, and word problems. All tests reliable for Spanish speakers; only four for…
