Survey 3: Interpreting NAEP Results

The recent NAEP results for mathematics should be interpreted in a nuanced way, as expected for something that boils down international educational issues into quantitative scores. Poll results revealed a variety of interpretations. (Respondents were 9 researchers or teacher educators, 12 teachers or teacher leaders, and 2 administrators)

24% said that the drop was due to the reduction of probability and statistics in the Common Core (but that content was still tested on NAEP), with researchers especially favoring this explanation. Another 24% said that this is a minor blip in a long-term upward trend in math scores, with both administrators giving this interpretation. Teachers gave a variety of responses. Of all respondents, 14% viewed it as a major indictment of Common Core (and one viewed it as a failure of implementation) and 14% viewed it as a minor indictment of No Child Left Behind.

NCTM took the top two spots, with Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (2000) and Principles to Actions (2014) tying for the book that we would most like to see in the hands of future math teachers. They each received 31% of the vote. Other books that received votes were The Teaching Gap, Adding It Up, and Pedagogy of the Oppressed.

69% of the respondents identified as researchers, 46% as teacher educators, and 15% as teachers.

The notion of Procedural and Conceptual Understanding came in as the "big idea" that is most pervasive in the thinking of math educators, with nearly 35% of the vote. Tied for second place were ideas about attending to student thinking and also the kinds of thinking and interacting we want students to engage in, particularly the process standards or Standards for Mathematical Practice.

50% of the respondents identified as researchers, 45% as teachers, 36% as teacher educators, 9% as teacher leaders, and 5% as educational technologist.
