Gender gaps : where schools still fail our children by American Association of University Women( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the eve of the 21st century, what progress have we made? What gaps still need to be addressed? How are technological advances and profound shifts in school demographics changing the way we teach? Most importantly, do new approaches to teaching and learning benefits both girls and boys? Gender Gaps confirms that public schools are making progress toward equitable treatment of boys and girls. Nevertheless, high academic standards for all students cannot be realized without equity. Equity differs from equality in asking not whether girls and boys receive the same education but whether they receive the right education to achieve a shared standard of excellence

Reading framework for the 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1973, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) has gathered information about student achievement in mathematics. Results of these periodic assessments, produced in print and web-based formats, provide valuable information to a wide variety of audiences. The naep Assessment in mathematics has two components that differ in purpose. One assessment measures long-term trends in achievement among 9-, 13-, and 17-year-old students by using the same basic design each time. The main naep Assessment is based on a framework (such as this one) that can be updated periodically. The "2011 Mathematics Framework" only reflects changes in grade 12 from 2005; mathematics content objectives for grades 4 and 8 have not changed. Therefore, main naep trend lines from the early 1990s can continue at fourth and eighth grades for the 2011 assessment. In broad terms, this framework attempts to answer the question: What mathematics skills should be assessed on naep at grades 4, 8, and 12? Of critical importance is the fact that this document does not attempt to answer the question: What (or how) mathematics should be taught? The framework was developed with the understanding that some concepts, skills, and activities in school mathematics are not suitable to be assessed on naep, although they may well be important components of a school curriculum. This framework describes a design for the main naep assessments at the national, state, and district levels, but it is not the framework for the long-term trend naep Assessment. This report contains five chapters: (1) Overview; (2) Framework for the Assessment; (3) Mathematical Complexity of Items; (4) Item Formats; and (5) Design of Test and Items. Naep Mathematics Achievement Level Descriptions is appended. A bibliography is included. (Contains 12 exhibits.) [The following people were the primary authors of the introductions to the content areas: Roger Howe; Richard Scheaffer, and Mary Lindquist.]

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1973, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) has gathered information about levels of student proficiency in mathematics. These assessments are reported by naep periodically and present information on the strengths and weaknesses in students' mathematical understanding and their ability to apply that understanding in problem solving situations. This document presents the mathematics framework for the 1996 and 2000 naep assessments. The suggested revisions in the framework for the new naep assessment in mathematics are intended to reflect recent curricular emphases and objectives; to include what various scholars, practitioners, and interested citizens believe should be in the assessment; and to maintain ties to prior assessments to permit the reporting of trends in student achievement. Recommendations for the 1996 and future naep mathematics assessment are presented in eight categories: (1) content strands; (2) mathematical abilities; (3) percentage of items; (4) item families; (5) constructed-response items; (6) special studies; (7) manipulatives; and (8) item bias review. Contains 12 references. (Ask)
