“Cross-Cultural Analysis of Students with Exceptional Talent in Mathematical Problem Solving”

posted Jul 13, 2010, 9:21 PM by Glenna Buford

“Cross-Cultural Analysis of Students with Exceptional Talent in Mathematical Problem Solving,” Notices of the American Mathematical Society, November, 2008.  The connection, if any, between gender (or other demographic factors) and mathematical skills has been much discussed in the popular and scientific press. In this study, the authors investigate ultra-high-level mathematical ability by looking at top tier mathematics competitions and find that girls and boys do equally well.

NAEP statistics

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. Assessments are conducted periodically in mathematics, reading, science, writing, the arts, civics, economics, geography, and U.S. history.

Since NAEP assessments are administered uniformly using the same sets of test booklets across the nation, NAEP results serve as a common metric for all states and selected urban districts. The assessment stays essentially the same from year to year, with only carefully documented changes. This permits NAEP to provide a clear picture of student academic progress over time.
