ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Wilmington University (Delaware)
The landmark educational reform legislation known as the No Child Left Behind Act (2001) brought sweeping change to the educational establishment through clearly defined learning goals and equally clear consequences for poorly performing schools. The present study sought to determine the impact of a remediation program in mathematics at a suburban school district in southeastern Pennsylvania. A cohort of students (n = 63) that performed on their 8th grade PSSA mathematics assessment participated in a three-year remediation program that culminated with the 2010 PSSA in mathematics. Results via a Wilcoxin ranked sums test indicated that the overall impact of the remediation program was positive, however, individual strands of the program did not achieve a significant difference between the pre and posttest. However, (17) of the participants were able to move from non-proficient to proficient and advanced at the conclusion of the remediation program.
