Mathematics Teaching and Learning Strategies in PISA

image of Mathematics Teaching and Learning Strategies in PISA

Mathematics Teaching and Learning Strategies in PISA uses data from the PISA 2003 assessment to examine the relationships between teaching strategies, student learning strategies and mathematics achievement. The report aims to identify instructional practices and learning strategies that contribute to increased achievement in mathematics and general knowledge. It then explains how these strategies may be related to different countries’ school system structures.

This report offers policy insights and stimulates new research to complement and further develop the recent OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) and the upcoming PISA 2012 assessment, which will again focus on mathematics. In addition, this report may be of interest to teachers, educators and officials within national and local educational authorities responsible for the professional development of teachers or for programme development, as well as members of school boards and parent advisory bodies.

Foreword

This thematic report explores results of the 2003 cycle of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) in order to identify teaching and learning strategies that contribute to increased achievement, particularly in mathematics. The analysis helps to clarify an understanding of the following: (i) the differences between teaching and learning practices across countries that can allow countries to benchmark practices; (ii) the extent to which teaching and learning practices vary among schools in each country; and (iii) the extent to which individual aspects of teaching and learning strategies are associated with better performance in mathematics.
