The POWERSOURCE[c] intervention is intended as a generalizable and powerful formative assessment strategy that can be integrated with any mathematics curriculum. POWERSOURCE[c] includes both a system of learning-based assessments and an infrastructure to support teachers' use of those assessments to improve student learning. The core undertaking of our work during the 2008-09 school year was to continue with an extended, random assignment implementation study of the POWERSOURCE[c] program. Results from our analyses indicated that a short amount of targeted intervention on key mathematical principles had a positive impact on student performance on transfer measures of related content. The POWERSOURCE[c] intervention had more impact on the relatively higher-performing students than the lower-performing students; that is, those students with higher initial pretest scores tended to benefit more from the treatment when compared to students with lower pretest scores. Appendices include: (1) CFA [confirmatory factor analysis] Result of PS Grade 6 Pretest; (2) CFA Result of PS Grade 6 Interim Measure; (3) CFA Result of PS Grade 6 Transfer Measure; (4) CFA Results of PS Grade 7 Pretest; (5) CFA Result of PS Grade 7 Transfer Measure; (6) Item Analysis Results of PS Grade 6 Pretest; (7) Item Analysis Results of PS Grade 7 Pretest; (8) Sources of Transfer Measure Items; (9) Alignment of CA [California] Standards and NCTM; (10) Item Analysis Results of PS Grade 6 Posttest; (11) Grade 7 Transfer Measure 2008/2009; (12) Item Analysis Results of PS Grade 7 Posttest; (13) Grade 6 Transfer Measure 2008/2009; (14) Item Analysis Results of PS Grade 6 Intertest; (15) Descriptive Statistics by Content Domain; (16) Additional Descriptive Statistics for Grades 6 and 7; (17) Complete Statistical Model Used; (18) Estimates for Fixed Effects and the Variance; (19) Subdomain HLM Analysis Results for Grade 7; (20) Fixed Effects and the Variance Components in the Model, Grade 6; (21) Subdomains as an Outcome Variable, Grade 6; (22) Interim Measure Estimates of Fixed Effect and the Variance Components; (23) Estimates for Fixed Effects and the Variance Components in the Model, Grade 6 Transfer Measure; (24) Teacher Evaluation of Student Work; (25) Grade 7 Interim Transfer Measure 2009/2010; (26) Grade 7 Transfer Measure, Revised Version; (27) Grade 8 Pretest; and (28) Grade 8 Transfer Measure 2009/2010.
