Ronau, Robert N.; Rakes, Christopher R.; Bush, Sarah B.; Driskell, Shannon O.; Niess, Margaret L.; Pugalee, David K. – American Educational Research Journal, 2014
We examined 480 dissertations on the use of technology in mathematics education and developed a Quality Framework (QF) that provided structure to consistently define and measure quality. Dissertation studies earned an average of 64.4% of the possible quality points across all methodology types, compared to studies in journals that averaged 47.2%.…

Brisson, Brigitte Maria; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Gaspard, Hanna; Häfner, Isabelle; Flunger, Barbara; Nagengast, Benjamin; Trautwein, Ulrich – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
The present study investigated the effectiveness of two short relevance interventions (writing a text or evaluating quotations about the utility of mathematics) using a sample of 1,916 students in 82 math classrooms in a cluster randomized controlled experiment. Short-term and sustained effects (6 weeks and 5 months after the intervention) of the…

Gersten, Russell; Rolfhus, Eric; Clarke, Ben; Decker, Lauren E.; Wilkins, Chuck; Dimino, Joseph – American Educational Research Journal, 2015
Replication studies are extremely rare in education. This randomized controlled trial (RCT) is a scale-up replication of Fuchs et al., which in a sample of 139 found a statistically significant positive impact for Number Rockets, a small-group intervention for at-risk first graders that focused on building understanding of number operations. The…

Chmielewski, Anna K.; Dumont, Hanna; Trautwein, Ulrich – American Educational Research Journal, 2013
The aim of the present study was to examine how different types of tracking--between-school streaming, within-school streaming, and course-by-course tracking--shape students' mathematics self-concept. This was done in an internationally comparative framework using data from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). After…

Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie – American Educational Research Journal, 2008
A randomized-trials design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of a preschool mathematics program based on a comprehensive model of research-based curricula development. Thirty-six preschool classrooms were assigned to experimental (Building Blocks), comparison (a different preschool mathematics curriculum), or control conditions. Children were…

Tatsuoka, Kikumi K.; Corter, James E.; Tatsuoka, Curtis – American Educational Research Journal, 2004
This study used a diagnostic testing approach to compare the mathematics achievement of eighth-grade students across a sample of 20 countries, analyzing data from the Third International Math and Science Study-Revised (TIMSS-R, 1999). Using the rule-space method, student mastery was measured on 23 specific content knowledge and processing…

Mayer, Richard E.; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1995
This brief report compares the lessons on addition and subtraction of signed whole numbers in three seventh-grade Japanese mathematics texts and four U.S. mathematics texts. Japanese books contained many more worked-out examples and relevant illustrations, while U.S. books had more irrelevant illustrations and unsolved problems. (SLD)

Carpenter, Thomas P.; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1989
Twenty first-grade teachers' use of knowledge from research about mathematical thinking of children was compared with that of 20 teachers who did not participate in an analysis of research. Implications for teacher education and practice are discussed. (SLD)

Blazar, David; Litke, Erica; Barmore, Johanna – American Educational Research Journal, 2016
Education agencies are evaluating teachers using student achievement data. However, very little is known about the comparability of test-based or "value-added" metrics across districts and the extent to which they capture variability in classroom practices. Drawing on data from four urban districts, we found that teachers were…

Maple, Sue A.; Stage, Frances K. – American Educational Research Journal, 1991
A longitudinal model of mathematics/science major choice at college entrance for Black and White, male and female students was tested using a "High School and Beyond" sample. Significant predictors of choice included sophomore choice of major, mathematics attitudes, mathematics/sciences courses completed by senior year, and various…

Slavin, Robert E.; Karweit, Nancy L. – American Educational Research Journal, 1985
Achievement and attitudinal effects of three mathematics instruction methods directed in varying degrees toward accommodating diversity in student performance levels were compared in two randomized field experiments with third- through sixth-grade classes. Treatments included Team Assisted Individualization, Ability Group Active Teaching, the…

Bergan, John R.; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1991
Effects of a measurement and planning system on the cognitive development, promotion, and referral to special education of 838 public school kindergartners were studied. The 428-member experimental group, whose 29 teachers implemented the system, had higher posttest scores in reading, mathematics, and science than did the 410-member control group.…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1991
The effects of on-going curriculum-based measurement of student growth and expert system instructional consultation on teacher planning and student achievement in mathematics operations were studied for 33 elementary teachers assigned to one control or 2 experimental groups. Each teacher worked with two learning disabled or emotionally disturbed…

Fletcher, J. D.; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1990
The costs, effects, and utility of mathematics instruction assisted by microcomputer presentations were compared with those of conventional classroom approaches, using 79 students in grades 3 and 5. Results indicate that grouping students for instruction on microcomputers in classrooms is cost effective. (SLD)

Finn, Jeremy D.; Achilles, Charles M. – American Educational Research Journal, 1990
Effects of class size on academic achievement were studied for 2 years using 6,572 kindergartners in Tennessee assigned to large classes (22 to 25 students) or small classes (13 to 17 students). Significant benefits of small class size were seen in reading and mathematics achievement, especially for minority students. (SLD)
