Связь установок и стажа учителей с образовательными достижениями учащихся в начальной школе
The main aim of the study was to assess the relationship between teachers’ experience, teachers’ beliefs and academic achievement of fourth graders. Academic achievement was measured using the SAM test (Student's Achievement Monitoring), which was based on the three-stage model of development of educational and subject competences. The analysis showed that students who were taught by teachers with experience of more than 30 years, demonstrated a higher achievement in both language and mathematics. It was also confirmed that constructivism beliefs were positively associated with the probability that students could achieve the highest level of academic and subject-specific competences.
