Carnegie Learning Curricula and Cognitive Tutor[R] Software. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
The combination of "Carnegie Learning Curricula and Cognitive Tutor[R] Software" merges algebra textbooks with interactive software developed around an artificial intelligence model that identifies strengths and weaknesses in an individual student's mastery of mathematical concepts. The software customizes prompts to focus on areas in which the student is struggling and routes the student to problems that address those specific concepts. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) reviewed 24 studies on "Carnegie Learning Curricula and Cognitive Tutor[R] Software" for high school students. Two of these studies meet WWC evidence standards; two studies meet WWC evidence standards with reservations; the remaining 20 studies do not meet either WWC evidence standards or eligibility screens. Based on the four studies, the WWC found no discernible effects on mathematics achievement for high school students. The conclusions presented in this report may change as new research emerges. Appendices include: (1) Study characteristics; (2) Outcome measures for the mathematics achievement domain; (3) Summary of study findings included in the rating for the mathematics achievement domain; (4) Summary of subscale findings for the mathematics achievement domain; (5) "Carnegie Learning Curricula and Cognitive Tutor[R] Software" rating for the mathematics achievement domain; and (6) Extent of evidence by domain. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
