Series: Education in a Competitive and Globalizing World
BISAC: EDU038000

While factors including school budget and teacher competency undoubtedly impact outcomes in education, the success of students ultimately depends on their interest in, and enjoyment of, the experience of learning. In the same vein, this volume includes six chapters exploring the importance of students’ attitudes towards education from a variety of perspectives. Chapter One aims to unveil the attitudes of nineteen Greek state senior high school students toward the use of self-assessment as an alternative assessment method for learning. Chapter Two includes the first cross-national study of affective outcomes among middle-school mathematics students in the USA and Hong Kong. Chapter Three discusses the need for and strategies for incorporating critical thinking, student engagement, and assessment of competency and education in the context of students in healthcare. Chapter Four argues that the three Chinese Primary School elements of class group space, project-based learning, and student clubs make learning more enjoyable for students and help them form a community of practice. Chapter Five examines the role of growth mindset in student learning and engagement at community colleges. Finally, Chapter Six presents a critical review of the existing literature surrounding e-learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
