Project Title: Translational Specifications of Neural-Informed Game-Based Interventions for Mathematical Cognitive Development of Low-Progress Learners
Project Introduction: A team of researchers from NIE and mathematics specialists from MOE, in collaboration with experts from University College London, UK, is embarking on a research study that aims to narrow mathematical achievement gaps within the Singapore education system.
We aim to identify the characteristics and causes why learners persistently perform poorly in math, particularly those who continue to struggle despite current established behavioral and cognitive intervention approaches in schools.
Applicants are sought for short-term Research Assistants to assist with data collection and instrument administration for a characterization study of low progress mathematics learners in Singapore primary schools.
