This digest provides information on determining the effectiveness of school mathematics programs. The purposes for developing accountability programs and characteristics of good mathematics programs are listed. State goals and objectives and standards developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics have furthered the production of materials useful in the development of school goals and objectives. Data on several variables should be collected, including curriculum, instruction, and student learning, to determine the effectiveness of the program. Processes for using collected data are considered. Thirteen references are listed. (YP)
