The Role of Mathematics and Chinese Language in Driving Achievement Growth: What Drives What? A Latent Growth Curve Study

The study aims to (1) Develop models of growth in the curriculum subjects of Mathematics and Chinese Language for Hong Kong students over the course of six years, from Primary 3 (i.e., Grade 3) to Secondary 3 (i.e., Grade 9); (2) Examine the effects of initial mathematics and Chinese language abilities on growth; (3) Explore the reciprocal effects of growth in mathematics and Chinese language proficiency; and (4) Examine gender differences of growth in the two subjects. The proposed study will analyse the TSA secondary data originally collected by the government. Multilevel growth curve modelling will be conducted in several steps to analyse the data.
