Abstract

In this study, the researchers developed an inventory which can measure the affective achievement in mathematical learning especially targeted to Korean students. By using EFA and CFA, the six affective factors of mathematical learning such as learning directivity, self control, anxiety, interest, cognizing value and confidence are distinguished. Also, the content validity of this inventory was examined by the experts groups, composed of mathematics education professors, high school mathematics teachers, and measurement experts. The reliability of the instrument was high enough to trust the results. Through a large scaled sampling, the reliability and validity of this inventory were verified. In addition, this inventory was developed not by a partial aspects of a certain theory but based on the recent theories. Due to these reasons, the results of this study can be respected that it plays a leading part in understanding the affective achievement of Korean students.
