Odyssey Math. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Odyssey Math," published by CompassLearning[R], is an interactive, software-based K-8 mathematics curriculum. It includes individualized instructional and assessment tools, as well as an administrative function that allows teachers to track student performance and progress and to generate reports. Lessons employ real-world contexts in which students can apply ideas, tools, and manipulatives, and they allow for individualized assessment and instruction. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) identified 23 studies of "Odyssey Math" that were published or released between 1983 and 2008. Five studies are out of the scope of the review because they have an ineligible study design that does not meet WWC evidence standards; an additional fifteen studies are out of the scope of the review, as defined by the Middle School Math protocol, for reasons other than study design. The remaining three studies are withing the scope of the review and have an eligible design, but do not meet WWC evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of "Odyssey Math." (Contains 3 footnotes.)
