Sondergeld, Toni A.; Johnson, Carla C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019

In response to the call for more rigorously validated educational assessments, this study used an iterative multimethod validation process to develop and validate outcomes from the 21st Century Skills Assessment global rating scale. Qualitative and quantitative data sources were used to inform four types of validity evidence: content, response…

Sondergeld, Toni A.; Johnson, Carla C.; Walten, Janet B. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016

Despite monetary and educational investments in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) being at record high levels, little attention has been devoted to generating a common understanding of STEM. In addition, working with business, K-12 schools, and/or institutions of higher education to establish a grassroots effort to help…

Beekman, John A.; Ober, David – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

Nine years of results on 4.2 million of Indiana's Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress (ISTEP) mathematics (math) exams (grades 3-10) taken after the implementation of No Child Left Behind have been used to determine gender gaps and their associated trends. Sociocultural factors were investigated by comparing math gender gaps and gap…

Kloosterman, Peter – School Science and Mathematics, 2014

The Long-Term Trend (LTT) mathematics assessment of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) used the same set of items from 1982 through 2004, including 20 items that were administered to 9-and 13-year-olds, 29 items that were administered to 13-and 17-year-olds, and 4 items that were administered at all three ages. This study used…

Johnson, Carla C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2012

This is a case study of the implementation of state STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) policy over the period of the first 18 months of building a regional STEM partnership. Fullan's change theory is the framework used to determine progress and associated challenges with building a regional STEM educational partnership and…

Ellis, Arthur K.; Alleman-Brooks, Janet – School Science and Mathematics, 1978

Examples of possible methods for unobtrusively evaluating student progress through real problem solving outcomes without formal testing are illustrated. These methods include the use of interviews, artifacts, observations, I learned statements, checklists, flow of discussion charts, and self-awareness exercises. (MN)

The Effect of Testing Frequency upon the Achievement of Students in High School Mathematics Courses.

Peer reviewed

Dineen, Parsla; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1989

Described is a study which was designed to investigate the effects of two evaluation methods on the learning process in mathematics courses. States that in one method students were given daily tests; the second method relied on weekly tests. No significant differences were noted; however certain trends were apparent. (RT)
