Going Further: A Roadmap to the Works of the ACCLAIM Research Initiative. Working Paper No. 42
Wilson, Zach; Howley, Craig
Appalachian Collaborative Center for Learning, Assessment, and Instruction in Mathematics (ACCLAIM)
"Going Further" presents a roadmap to the works of the ACCLAIM (Appalachian Collaborative Center for Learning, Assessment, and Instruction in Mathematics) Research Initiative, the research effort of one the Centers for Learning and Teaching (CLTs) created with a grant (2001-2005) from the National Science Foundation. The Center began with a broad mission to include practitioners, a doctoral program, and a research program. This report focuses on the most substantive "works" produced for the Center's research program (known as the "Research Initiative"). This report also offers an internal evaluation of the works produced (the present authors for the Center), but it relies rather than more heavily on descriptions of the works, and less on nuanced judgments than might an essay review. One section deals with specifically with the evaluation of individual works, as to be explained shortly, but one section engages a wider discussion around the critique of several key ideas that surface across the ACCLAIM opus. Both these presentations are best read as part of the roadmap mission; they give a somewhat deeper engagement with the scope of the works than the simple descriptions initially presented. The report synthesizes the results of ACCLAIM's empirical work, summarizing the findings of individual studies (14 quantitative studies and 20 qualitative studies; unduplicated accounting) but also characterizing the overall findings. Appended are: (1) Table of ACCLAIM works replaced by later versions; (2) ACCLAIM's Theoretical Framework; (3) Background Information; (4) Numerical Codes for ACCLAIM Works Listed in Table 2, Alphabetized by Year; (5) Evaluation Chart for High-Scoring Theoretical Works; and (6) Glossary of Key Concepts. (Contains 5 tables and 60 footnotes.)
