Interactive Whiteboard Use: The Catalyst of Student Achievement
Lamberth, Tenneille Terrell
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Southern Mississippi
The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 forced school districts to become more accountable by requiring all students to read on grade level by the year 2014. However, President Obama's educational policy shift is allowing states to develop their own accountability and improvement system. This study examined fourth and eighth grade math achievement on the Mississippi Curriculum Test, 2nd edition and interactive whiteboard use, attitudes and perceptions, and professional development. Data were collected from 21 participating Mississippi Gulf Coast area schools to determine if a correlation existed between fourth and eighth grade math achievement and interactive whiteboard use, attitudes and perceptions, and professional development. Data collected from school building surveys and the MCT2 scores were retrieved from the Mississippi department of education website. The fourth and eighth grade math achievement and interactive whiteboard use, attitudes and perceptions, and professional development were studied to analyze the correlation.
