dc.description.abstractThis is an on-going research project conducted at the National Institute of Education, Singapore. It is on the meaningful measurement of processes and products of learning in mathematics and science to address the issue of difficult learning. Using a learning inventory, students' attributions of successes and learning difficulties, their practices of metacognitive decision-making are examined on a sample of low-ability girls (grade 8; N=58) in a secondary school in Singapore. Eight girls with more than one attributions beyond their personal control are administered five mathematical tasks which are targeted at the five different stages of a problem-solving cycle. Their problem-solving behaviours, particularly their metacognitive decision-making and affection, are studied with reference to their attributional characteristics. The conclusion from this small-scale study is that apart from simply encouraging students to expend more efforts which are considered as within personal control, knowledge of cognitive skills and practising of metacognitive decision-making are necessary in helping them to overcome helplessness in mathematical problem-solving. The long-term benefits of this project is maximisation of achievement in mathematics education.en_US
