Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1992 
166 p. 

The "Preparing Elementary Teachers to Teach Mathematics (PETTM) Project" (1988-1991) was a cooperative university/school effort to improve the teaching of mathematics by elementary teachers with its primary focus on improving the university training of preservice teachers (PSTs) in mathematics. This document, the last of the project's 5-volume final report, describes the "Research and Evaluation" component of the project. The first four sections of this volume focus on data relating to the four main project goals. In addition, there is a section on the evaluation instruments that were developed and used in the project. A summary of the project evaluation indicates that the PSTs have formed beliefs that are conducive to teaching mathematics from a problem-solving perspective, that a working relationship with the local school district did take place, and that the PETTM Project did have positive impact on teachers teaching and on students problem-solving abilities and attitudes. Six appendices comprising the bulk of the volume testing program) provide data on mathematical beliefs of PSTs, the Highland Park Teacher Questionnaire and results, profiles of five teachers, ISTEP (Indiana Statewide Testing Program) results, the Problem Solving Tests and results, and student belief interview schedules.
