The mathematical experiences of elementary students often focus on memorizing facts and rules as opposed to making sense of the subject and developing problem solving skills. Students spend large amounts of time processing, memorizing and sorting...
Findings from prior research are drawn together to create a learning model for elementary school mathematics in the cognitive-constructivist tradition. A potential teaching/learning process consistent with the model was developed and applied in a...

In 1999, the Federal Department of Education began the PT3 initiative. The goal of that initiative was to transform teacher education programs across the country to ensure that new teachers would enter the classroom prepared to effectively integrate ...
A change of emphasis in mathematics education may be needed from a mechanical and computational focus to a problem-solving approach. A first step in facilitating this goal is to place children in situations emphasizing problem-solving skills,...

Two easy-to-use microcomputer programs, the Student Problem Package and the Test Analysis Package, both by D. L. Harnisch et al. (1985), are described. These programs efficiently analyze test data for teachers. (SLD)
This paper describes teacher usage of the microcomputer programs Test Analysis Package (TAP) and Student Problem Package (SPP) to analyze students' test item responses. These methods of organizing, analyzing, and reporting test results have proven...
