WWC Quick Review of the Report: "Scaling Up SimCalc Project: Can a Technology Enhanced Curriculum Improve Student Learning of Important Mathematics?"
What Works Clearinghouse
This study examines whether "SimCalc Mathworlds"[TM] improves students' knowledge of the algebra concepts of rate and proportionality. Strengths: The study is a well implemented randomized controlled trial (RCT) with acceptable sample attrition rates and no indications of other problems. Cautions: The study authors describe a rigorous test validation process, but not the results. If the test was based on specific "SimCalc Mathworlds"[TM]concepts, the results of the study could be misleading. [The following study is the focus of this "Quick Review": "Scaling Up SimCalc Project: Can a Technology Enhanced Curriculum Improve Student Learning of Important Mathematics?" Technical Report 01. Jeremy Roschelle, Deborah Tatar, Nicole Schectman, Stephen Hegedus, Bill Hopkins, Jennifer Knudsen, Antoinette Stroter. SRI International, May, 2007.]
