Webinar- 20 Years of PISA: Australian students' attitudes towards and impact on reading, mathematics & science learning
Oct 28, 2020 03:00 PM CST (Adelaide time-zone)

Dr. I Gusti Darmawan will present his investigation on changes in the attitudes of 15-year-old Australian students towards reading mathematics, and science, and explores the relationships between attitude and student performance in these respective domains over the period of 2000–2018. Multigroup Confirmatory Factor Analysis was used to examine the measurement invariance of the construct of attitudes across the cycles of PISA. In addition, Structural Equation Modelling was used to explore mediating effects of attitudes on performance in the three domains. The results indicated that there were significant declines in student performance for all three domains. The levels of enjoyment toward the subject domains were relatively low for reading and mathematics but relatively high for science. Levels of instrumental motivation were relatively high and had slight upward trends for both mathematics and science. There were positive and significant relationships between attitudes and student performances.
Dr. I Gusti Darmawan works at the School of Education, University of Adelaide.

Associate editors sought for IIER (Issues in Educational Research)

IIER is a 'middle-ranked', open access, low budget, online only, 'generalist' journal now receiving about 650 submissions per year from which we publish about 80 articles. We invite academics with educational research experience, any field, to browse in IIER's website, especially persons interested in open access (see aoasg.org.au/open-access-week-2020/ - 2020's theme is 'Open with purpose: Taking action to build structural equity and inclusion', into which IIER fits neatly). Typically, our associate editors have started up with IIER by doing a few reviews, then a few more, then trialling in our 'duty editor' roster, which is 'one month on', 'a number of months off'. The 'month on' duties are in one of two categories: a. acknowledgments and editorial rejects; b. external review process. Our associate editors are mostly retired faculty of education academics, but other demographics are invited to take an interest. Please email IIER co-editor rjatkinson@bigpond.com.
