Accelerated Math. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Accelerated Math" software creates individualized assignments aligned with state standards and national guidelines, scores student work, and generates reports on student progress. The software can be used in conjunction with the existing math curriculum to add practice components and potentially aid teachers in differentiating instruction through the program's progress-monitoring data. Studies in this review assess the effectiveness of "Accelerated Math" as part of a school's core math curriculum. What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) reviewed 38 studies on "Accelerated Math." None meet WWC evidence standards; three studies meet WWC evidence standards with reservations; the remaining 35 studies do not meet either WWC evidence standards or eligibility screens. Based on the three studies, the WWC found no discernible effects in math achievement. The conclusions presented in this report may change as new research emerges. Five appendixes are included: (1) Study Characteristics; (2) Outcome measures for the math achievement domain; (3) Summary of study findings included in the rating for the math achievement domain; (4) "Accelerated Math" rating for the math achievement domain; and (5) Extent of evidence by domain. (Contains 9 footnotes.)
