Example text

Procedure An online survey was conducted. Half of the students within each class were randomly selected to complete Form 1 in which students reported their motivation related to learning mathematics (student-level data). The other half of the students in the same class completed Form 2 in which students reported the frequency of authentic tasks that their mathematics teachers gave to them (class-level data). Although different groups of students provided student-level and class-level data, these multilevel data could be linked through common class identifications.

While the specifics of school curriculum may remain contested, there now appears to be some convergence among global educational scholars, policymakers and practitioners around what constitutes 21C literacies and dispositions and the enabling pedagogical approaches that are likely to foster them (Hanna et al. 2010). The use of authentic tasks is widely acknowledged to be one such pedagogical approach. While commonly referenced ‘21C literacies and dispositions’—such as digital, creative and critical literacies, collaboration and lifelong learning aptitudes such as engagement, interest and selfefficacy—have always played important roles in the progress of human history, they have traditionally been viewed as ‘expressive affordances’ (Bernstein 2000).

Coupled with the highly challenging content, this may explain students’ negative beliefs and attitudes towards the subject and ultimately serves to alienate students from sustained and advanced participation in the study of mathematics and related disciplines. An important upshot, therefore, is that high student achievement in mathematics should not blindside teachers to the equally important objective of stimulating students’ positive beliefs and motivational learning dispositions towards mathematics.
