The main goal of the RespMath project is to examine in depth the relationship between teachers’ responsive pedagogy, defined as feedback practice, and students’ learning outcome in mathematics, defined as achievements,self-regulation skills and self-efficacy.
The secondary-goals of the project are:
1.To develop and examine the value, as regards to student learning, of an intervention aimed to improve teachers feedback practice.
2.To develop and try out a research model which includes quantitative surveys, application of internationally acknowledged questionnaires and careful in-depth qualitative instruments to capture the development process in specific classrooms
3.To develop new theory about the relationship between teaching and learning which goes beyond tests and grades.
