Accelerated Math[TM]. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Accelerated Math"[TM], published by Renaissance Learning, is a software tool used to customize assignments and monitor progress in mathematics for students in grades 1-12. "Accelerated Math"[TM] creates individualized assignments that align with state standards and national guidelines, scores student work, and generates formative feedback through reports for teachers and students. The software can be used in conjunction with the existing math curriculum to add practice components and aid teachers in differentiating instruction via the program's progress-monitoring data. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) reviewed 32 studies on "Accelerated Math"[TM]. One of these studies meets WWC evidence standards; two studies meet WWC evidence standards with reservations; the remaining 29 studies do not meet either WWC evidence standards or eligibility screens. Based on the three studies, the WWC found mixed effects in math achievement for elementary school students. The conclusions presented in this report may change as new research emerges. Appendices include: (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"[TM] rating for the math achievement domain; and (5) Extent of evidence by domain. (Contains 10 footnotes.)
