A comparative analysis of the addition and subtraction of fractions in textbooks from three Countries
Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Delaney, S.; Hsu, H.; Mesa, V. (2010)In this paper, we report on a comparison of the treatment of addition and subtraction of fractions in primary mathematics textbooks used in Cyprus, Ireland, and Taiwan. To this end, we use a framework specifically developed ...

Article
Developing a test for exploring student performance in a complex domain: Challenges faced, decisions made, and implications drawn
Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Kyriakides, Leonidas; Philippou, George N. (2012)This paper illustrates the application of existing guidelines to develop a test grounded in theoretical perspectives and empirical findings in the area of problem solving. By documenting this process, the paper outlines ...

Article
Drawing on a theoretical model to study students' understandings of fractions
Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; PittaPantazi, Demetra (2007)Teaching and learning fractions has traditionally been one of the most problematic areas in primary school mathematics. Several studies have suggested that one of the main factors contributing to this complexity is that ...

Educational effectiveness research and international comparative studies: Looking back and looking forward.
Kyriakides, Leonidas; Charalambous, Charalambos Y. (Waxmann, 2014)With a little more than half of a century of conducting International Comparative Studies (ICS) and almost half of a century after the issuing of Coleman et al.’s study – often thought to have sparked Educational Effectiveness ...

Article
Examining the task and knowledge demands needed to teach with representations
Mitchell, R. N.; Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Hill, H. C. (2014)Representations are often used in instruction to highlight key mathematical ideas and support student learning. Despite their centrality in scaffolding teaching and learning, most of our understanding about the tasks ...

Exploring the curriculum implementation plateau: An instructional perspective
Silver, E. A.; Ghousseini, H. N.; Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Mills, V. (2008)

Article
Exploring the reliability of generic and contentspecific instructional aspects in physical education lessons
Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Kyriakides, Ermis; Tsangaridou, Niki; Kyriakides, Leonidas (2017)Heightened accountability pressures and an increased emphasis on teaching quality have directed scholarly attention to scrutinizing instruction, particularly with respect to issues of validity and reliability. However, ...

Article
Generating criteria for evaluating teachers through teacher effectiveness research
Kyriakides, Leonidas; Demetriou, Demetris; Charalambous, Charalambos Y. (2006)One of the major problems that confronts most educational systems concerns the need for developing a valid personnel evaluation system based on a strong theoretical framework. Unless the criteria for evaluating teachers ...

Article
Illuminating reform evaluation studies through incorporating teacher effectiveness research: A case study in mathematics
Kyriakides, Leonidas; Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Philippou, George N.; Campbell, R. J. (2006)The goal of the present study was twofold: first to examine teachers' and students' reactions toward a mathematics reform introduced in Cypriot primary schools, and second to investigate the factors influencing the ...

Article
The impact of school policy and stakeholders' actions on student learning: A longitudinal study
Kyriakides, Leonidas; Creemers, Bert P. M.; Antoniou,Panayiotis; Demetriou, Demetris; Charalambous, Charalambos Y. (2015)This paper proposes a theoretical framework on how school policy can promote student learning. School policy is considered to have an indirect effect on student achievement by changing school stakeholders' actions toward ...

Article
Investigating the Knowledge Needed for Teaching Mathematics: An Exploratory Validation Study Focusing on Teaching Practices
Charalambous, Charalambos Y. (2016)Central in the frameworks proposed to capture the knowledge needed for teaching mathematics is the assumption that teachers need more than pure subjectmatter knowledge. Validation studies exploring this assumption by ...

Article
Mathematical knowledge for teaching and task unfolding: An exploratory study
Charalambous, Charalambos Y. (2010)Although teachers' knowledge is thought to contribute to the selection and implementation of mathematical tasks, empirical evidence supporting this claim is scarce. To investigate this relationship and understand its nature, ...

Article
Mathematical knowledge for teaching and the mathematical quality of instruction: An exploratory study
Hill, H. C.; Blunk, M. L.; Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Lewis, J. M.; Phelps, G. C.; Sleep, L.; Ball, D. L. (2008)This study illuminates claims that teachers' mathematical knowledge plays an important role in their teaching of this subject matter. In particular, we focus on teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT), which ...

Article
Moving from rhetoric to praxis: Issues faced by teachers in having students consider multiple solutions for problems in the mathematics classroom
Silver, E. A.; Ghousseini, H. N.; Gosen, D.; Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Strawhun, B. T. F. (2005)Despite general agreement that students should consider more than one way to solve a complex mathematics problem, this practice is rarely observed in U.S. classrooms. In this paper, we examine data that trace the yearlong ...

Article
Moving from the if to the how: Improving instructional quality by delineating stages of teacher effectiveness
