Analytical Study to The Competency Exam Results - The Accuracy Level- of Math Students at Jordanian Universities


Abstract | الملخص

This study aimed to analyze the results of the competency university exam -The accuracy level- of undergraduate students in the field of mathematics in Jordanian universities expected to graduate at the first semester of the academic year 2017-2018. To achieve the objectives of this study, the results of all the (240) students who submitted the exam were analyzed. The results of the analysis indicated that students did not reach the cut score of competency (40%) in the eight domains measured by the university competency exam in mathematics, which include: Calculus, Principles of mathematics Mathematical analysis, Algebra, Differential equations, Topology, Probabilities, and Geometry, where the results also indicated the domains of Probability and Calculus became at the higher level, while Topology came in lower level. In light of these results, the study recommended that faculty members in universities should focus on competencies of mathematics set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM
