A longitudinal study of student performance on items rich in graphics

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution

Abstract

This investigation examined the performance of students (9–12 year olds) over a three-year period as they
solved graphics-based mathematics items which are commonly found in standardised tests. There were
statistically significant improvements in the performance of students (across each of the six language types)
in each year of the study. Mean scores for boys were higher than girls on most measures with statistically
significant differences in Axis (number line), Map and Retinal-list categories.
