The findings were that Mathematics teachers are moderately aware of research findings on Mathematics education. There were significant differences between teachers’ qualifications in Mathematics and use of research findings on Mathematics testing. Motivation of Mathematics teachers to explore new strategies of teaching and to implement them in their classroom practice is recommended.
