Do Remedial Mathematics Programmes Improve Students' Mathematical Ability?
O'Connor, Wendy E.; Morrison, Todd G.
Studies in Educational Evaluation, v23 n3 p201-07 1997
The effectiveness of the Mathematical Skills Foundation Programme at Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada), a program that evaluates the mathematical knowledge of each student to individualize instruction, was studied with data from 304 students. Results suggest that the remedial program did not have a positive measurable effect on students in later mathematics courses. (SLD)
