Forgasz, Helen J.; Hill, Janelle C. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
The most recent Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) (2009) mathematical literacy results provide evidence that in Western English-speaking countries, including Australia, the gender gap in achievement appears to be widening in favour of males. In the study reported in this article, the aim was to explore the effects of gender,…

Hwang, Jihyun; Choi, Kyong Mi; Bae, Yejun; Shin, Dong Hoon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Many efforts have been made to reach educational equity, especially to reduce mathematics and science achievement gaps by students' socioeconomic status. Across countries, educators strive to reform traditional teacher-centered instructional approaches to more student-centered/inquiry-based instruction to improve equity in education. In this…

Mikk, Jaan; Krips, Heiki; Säälik, Ülle; Kalk, Karmen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Teacher-student relations have a significant correlation with student motivation, academic performance and discipline. For example, the meta-analysis by Hattie (2009) revealed an effect size of d = 0.72 for the effect of relations on achievement, and the meta-analysis by Finn, Schrodt, Witt, Elledge, Jernberg & Larson ("Communication…

Anderson, John O.; Lin, Huann-Shyang; Treagust, David F.; Ross, Shelley P.; Yore, Larry D. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
Large-scale assessments of student achievement provide a window into the broadly defined concepts of literacy and generate information about levels and types of student achievement in relation to some of the correlates of learning, such as student background, attitudes, and perceptions, and perhaps school and home characteristics. This paper…

McConney, Andrew; Perry, Laura B. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
In this study, we systematically unpack relationships among student socioeconomic status (SES), science and mathematics achievement, and student interest in science in the context of varying school socioeconomic composition. Using the most recent Programme for International Student Assessment dataset for Australia, we found that increases in…

Gilleece, Lorraine; Cosgrove, Jude; Sofroniou, Nick – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
Equity in education is a key concern internationally; however, it is rare that this issue is examined separately for low- and high-achieving students and concurrently across different subject domains. This study examines student and school background characteristics associated with low and high achievement in mathematics and science on the…

Yore, Larry D.; Anderson, John O.; Chiu, Mei-Hung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
Evidence-based policies, decisions, and practices are highly valued and underachieved in the international mathematics and science education reforms. Many in the mathematics and science education research communities lament the lack of influence that research results have on the education profession, schools, and teaching. Academic research done…

Anderson, John O.; Chiu, Mei-Hung; Yore, Larry D. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
This special edition of IJMSE focuses on the Programme of International Student Assessment (PISA) project now that it has completed a full cycle of administration--reading, mathematics, and science--to look at ways in which PISA has been used in participating countries and with what consequences, and to identify potential research and policy…

Knipprath, Heidi – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
Researchers, policy officials, and the wider public in Japan and abroad often hold different views about the quality of Japanese education. Whereas Western researchers are attracted by the academic performance of Japanese students in international assessment studies, Japanese university professors launched a public debate in 1999 about declining…

Milford, Todd; Ross, Shelley P.; Anderson, John O. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) has been developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development to provide participating nations with internationally comparative mean literacy scores in reading, mathematics, and science for students nearing the end of compulsory schooling. The number of nations from the…

Cheema, Jehanzeb R.; Kitsantas, Anastasia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
The present study investigated the role of disciplinary climate in the classroom and student math self-efficacy on math achievement. The student part of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2003 survey containing 4,199 U.S. observations was employed in a weighted least squares nested multiple regression framework to predict math…

Neumann, Knut; Fischer, Hans E.; Kauertz, Alexander – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
The German education system does not traditionally rely on standardized testing. However, when the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) study revealed an average performance of German students compared to other participating countries, a particular proportion of low-performing students, and remarkable disparities between the…

Lau, Kwok-Chi – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
The OECD "Programme for International Student Assessment" or (PISA) is one of the largest-scale international efforts that have been launched to assess students' scientific literacy. Such an international assessment would likely exert a profound impact on the science education policies of the participating countries/regions, including…

Coertjens, Liesje; Boeve-de Pauw, Jelle; De Maeyer, Sven; Van Petegem, Peter – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
The environmental agenda is gaining momentum as an international policy issue. This is reflected in an increase in environmental education research focussing on children's awareness and attitudes toward the environment. In this study, we focused on this issue from a school effectiveness perspective and evaluated (a) which student characteristics…
