Gao, Jie – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Understanding the development of mathematics self-efficacy has important implications. Based on Bandura's four sources of self-efficacy, most previous studies mainly examined whether the sources predicted or correlated with mathematics self-efficacy, which might have oversimplified the underlying mechanism of self-efficacy development. This study…

Zhao, Xiaoyan; Van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Marja; Veldhuis, Michiel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study investigated Chinese primary school mathematics teachers' views on assessment in an effort to determine their assessment profiles. A large-scale questionnaire survey with 1101 teachers from 12 Chinese provinces and regions was carried out. The teachers reported to use assessment on a daily or weekly basis for different purposes. They…

Wu, Yingkang; Hwang, Stephen; Cai, Jinfa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In this exploratory study, we developed a portrait of the challenges and strategic responses of secondary mathematics teacher educators (MTEs) in Chinese universities. The MTEs reported encountering more challenges when teaching pedagogical courses and supervising student teachers than when teaching college mathematics courses and teaching…

Ding, Lin; Wei, Xin; Mollohan, Katherine – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
An ultimate goal of higher education is to prepare our future workers with needed knowledge and skills. This includes cultivating students to become proficient reasoners who can utilize proper scientific reasoning to devise causal inferences from observations. Conventionally, students with more years of higher education are expected to have a…
