Simms, Kathryn – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2012
This study compared immigrant and nonimmigrant educational achievement (i.e., the immigrant gap) in math by reexamining the explanatory power of race and socioeconomic status (SES)--two variables, perhaps, most commonly considered in educational research. Four research questions were explored through growth curve modeling, factor analysis, and…

Pereira, Nielsen; Peters, Scott J.; Gentry, Marcia – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
My Class Activities (MCA) is an instrument that has been used for evaluation of university-based Saturday enrichment programs, but was originally normed using students in regular schools. A sample of MCA scores from 826 students in grades 3-8 from a Saturday enrichment program was used. Four different MCA models were evaluated: (a) the original…

Won, Seoung Joun; Han, Seunghee – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
This study examined the relationships between American and South Korean students' achievement and their time spent in out-of-school activities. Analyzing nationally representative data for 8,912 U.S. and 5,309 Korean middle school students from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2003, we found differences in…

Dove, Mary Jane; Pearson, L. Carolyn; Hooper, Herbert – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2010
The relationship between grade span configuration and academic achievement of 6th-grade students as measured by the Arkansas Benchmark Examination, which is the approved NCLB criterion-referenced annual assessment, was examined. The results of a one-between two-within analysis of variance for the 3-year state-wide study of 6th graders' combined…

Ramdass, Darshanand; Zimmerman, Barry J. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2008
Teachers need to monitor students' self-efficacy judgments, as well as their mathematics learning, to provide optimal instruction. First, inaccuracies in self-judgments appear to be a major liability for elementary and middle school children. Classroom practice must cultivate the knowledge to succeed and should nurture the belief that one can…

Piccolo, Diana L.; Harbaugh, Adam P.; Carter, Tamara A.; Capraro, Mary Margaret; Capraro, Robert M. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2008
According to the NCTM reform suggestions, when teachers are orchestrators of student interactions, students adopt a more active role in explaining and learning mathematics. This research, which mapped the nature and role of meaningful mathematical discourse, provides insights into discursive practices that lead to rich mathematical interactions.…
