Fulfillment of Students' Expectations as an Indicator of Effective Learning

756

Abstract

The article focuses on applying a technique for investigating the achievement of pupils' expectations together with cluster analysis to the assessment of learning effectiveness in pupils studying in classes with a special emphasis on physics and math. As it has been revealed in this research, later on, at university, the level of the achievement of expectations in students who had studied in special physics/math classes was higher than that of students from ordinary classes.
