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…

Romberg, Thomas A. – 1969
This publication contains sixteen abstracts of papers presented at the Research Reporting Sessions of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Annual Meeting. The investigations reported by Anthony, Creswell, Higgins, and Weise focus on curriculum and classroom innovations in the school mathematics program. Investigations by Gibbons,…

Romberg, Thomas A. – 1986
Past studies of compensatory education programs in mathematics show that they have not addressed mathematical concerns, have not had clear program goals, have had a narrow view of what constitutes evaluation, and have taught little that would improve students' mathematical abilities. In the future, compensatory programs for mathematics should…

Romberg, Thomas A. – 1994
The use of the term "world class standards" grows out of the rhetoric surrounding the National Education Goals of 1990. The perspective of the mathematical sciences education community on world class standards is offered through a description of their efforts on behalf of reform of mathematics education and a discussion of what such…

Romberg, Thomas A.; And Others – 1982
This report summarizes the data from a comparative study of grades 2 and 5 mathematics instruction and the use of Developing Mathematical Processes (DMP) in IGE and non-IGE settings. These results are part of a five-phase evaluation of the IGE system of elementary schooling. Use of DMP and reported adoption of IGE were not found to be good…

Romberg, Thomas A. – American Journal of Education, 1997
Examines the growing influence and developments of other country's mathematics education and reform efforts on U.S. efforts at improving mathematics education. Specifically, it discusses those reform efforts and materials currently in use in the United States that were guided by research and reform in the Netherlands. (GR)

Romberg, Thomas A.; And Others – 1989
This report contains information gathered in the second of a series from the National Center for Research in Mathematical Sciences Education regarding effects of mandated testing. The purpose of the study was to determine for each state: (1) whether mathematics testing was mandated at the state level; (2) the processes of test selection or…

Romberg, Thomas A. – 1983
Data on how many minutes of instruction were allocated to various aspects of teaching initial addition and subtraction concepts and skills in the Developing Mathematical Processes (DMP) curriculum were summarized for 20 classrooms in grades 1-3. The same curriculum materials were used in each class at each grade level. The number of minutes spent…

Romberg, Thomas A.; 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…

Romberg, Thomas A.; Wilson, James W. – 1969
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). This report describes the processes used for deciding what should be measured, when, and how. Work of the SMSG Panel on Tests for collecting tests items, conceptualizing scales, pilot testing, and analyzing pilot test data is reviewed. The…

Buchanan, Anne E.; Romberg, Thomas A. – 1982
As part of a 3-year study of arithmetic problem-solving skills in young children, pretests were administered to 180 middle class first grade students. Following each of three instructional units, another achievement test was administered. The three first grade units corresponded to the Developing Mathematical Processes curriculum and involved…
