Effects of Equity 2000 on Student Achievement in Mathematics: Evidence from School Districts.
Everson, Howard T.; Dunham, Marlene D.
This paper discusses learning outcomes resulting from three national curricular reform efforts in mathematics. Focus is placed on the College Board's Equity 2000 program which operates on the principle that all students are given the opportunity to demonstrate high levels of academic achievement in mathematics. Information is provided on the Equity 2000 program and its effectiveness is evaluated. Enrollment and achievement trend data are also presented in discussing the effects of the program. This paper emphasizes the limitations and challenges of measuring Equity 2000's effect on mathematics achievement and concludes that it continues to be effective in raising student achievement in mathematics.
