  • School Safety for Middle School Students.

    1/1/09 - McGuire, J. K., Dixon, A., Russell, S.T.

    Most of the research on student bullying and school safety focuses on high school students. In particular, studies of harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression have rarely focused on middle school students, nor have many studies examined school policies or strategies that make middle schools safer. In this research brief we use data from three middle schools in one school district in California to study school safety for middle school students. Nearly every...

  • Secondary Mathematics Teachers' Perceptions of the Achievement Gap

    1/1/05 - Bol, Linda, Berry, Robert Q., III

    The purpose of this study was to survey the perceptions of secondary mathematics teachers on factors contributing to the achievement gap and ways to reduce this gap. National Council of the Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) members were surveyed, and a total of 379 secondary teachers responded. Overall, respondents were most likely to attribute the achievement gap to student characteristics, such as differences in motivational levels, work ethic, and family support. Furthermore, teachers from...

The CHKS is designed by WestEd under contract from the California Department of Education and administered by school districts.

  • The gender gap in math: Its possible origins in neighborhood effects

    1/1/94 - Entwisle, Doris R., Alexander, Karl L., Olson, Linda Steffel

    Examined whether different experiences of boys and girls in elementary school might lay the groundwork for a gender gap that emerges later in mathematics. A contextual analysis was conducted of data gathered for a 399 children in their 1st 2 yrs of school and from interviews with parents. Ss' math scores were examined again in their 8th yr of school. Boys' gains in math reasoning achievement were more sensitive to resources outside the home than were girls' gains. In line with the greater...

  • The Role of Cognition, Motivation, and Emotion in Explaining the Mathematics Achievement Gap Between Hispanic and White Students

    1/1/06 - Stevens, Tara, Olivárez, Arturo, Jr., Hamman, Doug

    The authors investigated the relationships between cognitive, motivational, and emotional variables across Hispanic and White students to predict mathematics performance. A theoretically based structural model fit a total sample of 666 4th- to 10th-grade students well, supporting that self-efficacy, sources of self-efficacy, and emotional feedback were all stronger predictors of mathematics performance than general mental ability. Tests of the structural model across ethnicity suggested a...
