Skill Performance Comparability of Two Algebra Programs on an Eighth-Grade Population. What Works Clearinghouse Detailed Study Report
What Works Clearinghouse
Peters (1992) reports that students in the intervention and control groups showed gains on the Orleans-Hanna test during the course of the school year (that is, from pretest to posttest). However, the test score gains of the two groups did not differ significantly. There was no evidence that the Saxon Algebra curriculum (intervention) was more or less effective than the University of Chicago Mathematics Project curriculum (control). Sample sizes were not adequate to allow for sufficiently precise estimates of the effect size.
