Abel, Brian B.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lamar University - Beaumont
This study was designed to investigate the differences between two groups of fifth grade students' performance on the 2010 fifth grade Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) math test. The sample consisted of a group of fifth grade students receiving the traditional instruction from their classroom teacher and a group of fifth grade students receiving instruction from a computer based math program called Reasoning Mind. The data used for this study were the students' scores on the fifth grade TAKS math test as well as the amount of growth in their vertical scale score from their fourth grade TAKS test to their fifth grade TAKS test. The data were analyzed and disaggregated by demographic groups and indicated differences in both the students' performances on the fifth grade TAKS test as well as the amount of growth made from the fourth grade TAKS test to the fifth grade TAKS test.
