Title: Trends in U.S. Mathematics Instruction, Achievement and Equity: What Can (and Can’t) National Data Tell Us?
Abstract: The increasing availability of large-scale datasets for studying mathematics education raises questions about what can and cannot be learned from such data. Using data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study (ECLS), this presentation examines what national datasets tell us about the impact of education reforms on diverse students’ mathematics experiences and outcomes, with attention to the Standards movement of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics the more recent Common Core State Standards. Data on mathematics instruction and outcomes in public and private schools will also be discussed.
