Diezmann, Carmel M. (2005) Assessing Primary Students’ Knowledge of Networks, Hierarchies and Matrices using Scenario-Based Tasks. In Clarkson, P., Downton, A., Gronn, D., Horne, M., McDonagh, A., Pierce, R., et al. (Eds.) 28th Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Sydney.
This paper investigated primary students’ (N = 127) knowledge of the properties of Networks, Hierarchies, and Matrices using a set of scenario-based tasks. Firstly, the results revealed differences in students’ knowledge of the various properties for each diagram, and differences in their knowledge of some properties across the various diagrams. Secondly and unexpectedly, the performance of older students’ was not significantly higher than younger students. Implications for instruction about diagrams and avenues for future research are discussed.
