The Effects of Accelerated Math Utilization on Grade Equivalency Score at a Selected Elementary School
Kariuki, Patrick; Gentry, Christi
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mid-South Educational Research Association (Mobile, AL, Nov 3-5, 2010)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of Accelerated Math utilization on students' grade equivalency scores. Twelve students for both experimental and control groups were randomly selected from 37 students enrolled in math in grades four through six. The experimental group consisted of the students who actively participated in Accelerated Math program. The control group consisted of the students who did not participate in Accelerated Math program. Data were collected from the reports generated from Accelerated Math program and from the STAR Math program. The STAR Math testing reports were used to determine the grade equivalency for each student in both experimental and control groups. Data were analyzed using independent t-test using 0.05 level of significance. The results indicated a significant difference between experimental and control groups grade equivalency scores. The experimental group showed greater increase in grade equivalence score than the control group. No significant difference was found in number operation proficiency. The results suggest that the use of Accelerated Math program combined with regular classroom instruction increases the students' grade equivalency scores. (Contains 1 table.)
