Master's Thesis
Notes
American
students
have been
underperforming
on
international
standardized
tests
for
over
thirty
years
. These
concerns
have been
documented
in
publications
(i.e
. A
Nation
at
Risk)
. The
United
States
federal
government
has also
written
―No
Child
Left
Behind‖
in
2002
to
address
the
problem
and
emphasized
standardized
testing
as a
way
to
evaluate
teacher
effectiveness
.
However
,
despite
all
of the
effort
to
attach
standardized
test
scores
to
teacher
effectiveness
no
significant
growth
has been
shown
in
4th
and
8th
grade
student
mathematics
scores
since
the
law
was
created
. In an
effort
to
develop
new
methods
of
instruction
that
did
not
rely
on
―teaching
to the
test‖
, this
researcher
evaluated
the
curriculum
of the
top
three
countries
that
perform
well
on the
Program
of
International
Student
Assessment
.
Japan
,
Finland
, and
Singapore
have
developed
challenging
curriculums
and
methods
of
instruction
that
increase
the
ability
of
students
to
solve
word
problems
.
Other
researchers
have
developed
ways
of
bringing
these
methods
to the
United
States
in
order
to
increase
student
learning
. This
researcher
developed
a
method
of
instruction
combining
the
twelve
notions
of
arithmetic
from
Dr
.
Philip
Halloran
and
writing
algebraic
equations
to
help
students
solve
word
problems
. This
method
of
instruction
was
compared
to a
control
group
that
learned
how to
solve
problems
by
memorizing
the
―key
words‖
. The
students
in the
experimental
and
control
classroom
were
given
a
fifty
question
word
problem
at the
end
of a
six
week
study
. The
students
in the
experimental
classroom
performed
significantly
better
than the
control
group
. They
scored
on
average
nineteen
points
higher
than the
control
group
.
