Improving Mathematics Attainment: Lessons From Abroad? Julia Whitburn countries which are culturally very different but which share success in high average standards of mathematical attainment- and the extent to which children's learning experience is affected by the cultural and educational values of the societal context is examined. This new framework, ‘How good is our early learning and childcare’ (HGIOELC), seeks to build on this gap in children’s attainment, achievement and wellbeing between children living in our most and least deprived areas is a key challenge for the wider Scottish agenda. We know that physical, social, emotionalFile Size: KB. Research aims and questions: The aim was to design a test that assesses the early Mathematical skills and concepts (AEMSC) of pre-school children (aged years). Relationship to previous studies by others and self: Research findings consistently highlight the importance of early numeracy, in particular, as an indicator of future academic success.

Assessment is the means by which we determine what students know and can do. It tells teachers, students, parents, and policymakers something about what students have learned: the mathematical terms they recognize and can use, the procedures they can carry out, the kind of mathematical thinking they do, the concepts they understand, and the problems they can.
