Fitzpatrick, Jeannie Whitlock
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
This study investigated the effects of parental involvement in the middle school students' achievement and self-perception of mathematics ability. Alarmingly low math proficiency, along with diminishing involvement with middle school parents, generated the purpose of the study. This research project used technology-based parental-involvement strategies to investigate their relationship to academic achievement and self-perception in mathematics of middle school students. The researcher uploaded videos of the teacher explaining upcoming topics to the Moodle website. The website had an additional area for parents to post questions. Additionally, the teacher sent used weekly emails to communicate with the parents. Results showed no significance between the treatment group and control group.
