Abstract or Description

Research suggests that mathematical anxiety is a complex phenomenon related to mathematical achievement, developmental dyscalculia, strategies of numerical information processing, and negative emotional states. The goal of this currently on-going large-scale study is to implement a mixed method approach towards assessment of mathematical anxiety across the school grades. The methods include: a picture-based assessment; a questionnaire measuring attitudes towards mathematics; and a computerized test-battery measuring mathematics related cognitive processes. This mixed method approach addresses mathematical anxiety as a multidimensional, multi-faceted and dynamic manifestation of individual differences in a specific educational context. The research also allows exploring interrelations between non-cognitive and cognitive processes involved in mathematical anxiety. Here we present the results of the first wave of the investigation, involving data from 3 different age groups, assessed in several schools in Russia and the UK. The results suggest the importance of accounting for educational contexts in measuring and treating mathematical anxiety.
