Vanlaar, Gudrun; Vandecandelaere, Machteld; De Fraine, Bieke; De Witte, Kristof; Van Damme, Jan – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
In this paper, the authors looked at the effectiveness of special education schools for mathematics learning. Mathematics education is a key to increasing the later professional and citizenship opportunities of students and mathematical understanding influences decision making in all areas of life. Additionally, math failure correlates highly with…

Munter, Charles; Cobb, Paul; Shekell, Calli – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
One purpose of education research is to develop and rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of programs for supporting students' learning and achievement. The Institute of Education Sciences has amplified that purpose (Shadish & Cook, 2009) and attempted to improve the methodological standards for conducting such work--primarily through the What…

Beesley, Andrea D.; Fancsali, Cheri; Gulemetova, Michaela – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
This paper describes a cluster-randomized trial of an after-school program intended to build mathematical identity among students in groups under-represented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Populations under-represented in STEM include women, persons with disabilities, African Americans, and Latino/as (NSF, 2011). U.S.…

Im, Soo-hyun; Jitendra, Asha K.; Harwell, Michael R.; Karl, Stacy R.; Slater, Susan C. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Ratio and proportional relationships, along with the interrelated topics of fractions,decimals, and percent, provide a critical foundation for algebra (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008). Proportional reasoning, which not only requires understanding the concept of ratios and that two or more ratios are equal, also requires the ability to…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Harwell, Michael R.; Karl, Stacy R.; Im, Soo-hyun; Slater, Susan C. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2018
Ratio and proportional relationships, along with the interrelated topics of fractions, decimals, and percent provide a critical foundation for algebra (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008). Solving even simple proportion problems is challenging for many children and adolescents. A small number of studies have examined the efficacy of…

Doabler, Christian; Clarke, Ben; Smolkowski, Keith; Fien, Hank; Baker, Scott – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
The adoption of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM, 2010) in 46 states has raised the mathematical proficiency bar for U.S. students. The advent of these new standards is at a time when the body of empirical evidence on the negative consequences of early and persistent difficulties in mathematics is clear, compelling, and…

Nguyen, Tutrang; Watts, Tyler W.; Duncan, Greg J.; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015
The widespread concern about mathematics achievement has drawn extensive research attention to what skills predict later academic achievement. There is clear and consistent evidence that math achievement at school entry is the strongest predictor of later school success and educational attainment. Early childhood math achievement can thus have…

Purpura, David J.; Ganley, Colleen – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
The successful acquisition and development of mathematics skills and concepts is a critical aspect of children's early academic growth. The purpose of this study was to systematically evaluate the unique relations of working memory and language to a range of specific early mathematics skills in a sample of preschool and kindergarten age children.…

Lang, Laura B.; Schoen, Robert R.; LaVenia, Mark; Oberlin, Maureen – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
The Florida Center for Research in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (FCR-STEM) was awarded a grant by the Florida Department of Education to develop a Mathematics Formative Assessment System (MFAS) aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Intended for both teachers and students, formative assessment is a process that…

Starkey, Prentice; Klein, Alice; DeFlorio, Lydia – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
There is a national need for effective interventions to improve school readiness and subsequent achievement in mathematics for students from low-income families. The purpose of this study was to implement and evaluate a 2-year preschool math intervention that began at preschool entry when children were 3 years of age and continued through the end…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Harwell, Michael R.; Karl, Stacy R.; Slater, Susan C.; Simonson, Gregory R.; Nelson, Gena – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Ratio and proportional relationships are of primary importance during the upper elementary and middle school grades (Kilpatrick, Swafford, & Findell, 2001; National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 1989, 2000; National Mathematics Advisory Panel [NMAP], 2008). These relationships, along with the interrelated topics of fractions, decimals,…

Klein, Alice; Starkey, Prentice; DeFlorio, Lydia; Brown, E. Todd – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2012
Educators are increasingly concerned about the low level of mathematics performance of U.S. students on the TIMSS and other international assessments of mathematics (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008) as well as their insufficient preparation for mathematics standards, such as the Common Core State Standards. Students from low-income and…

Bailey, Drew H.; Nguyen, Tutrang; Jenkins, Jade Marcus; Domina, Thurston; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015
A consistent finding across early childhood interventions targeting mathematics and other achievement-related skills that is that initial treatment effects fade over time, with children not receiving the intervention catching up to children who did (Clements et al., 2013; Leak et al., 2010; Puma et al., 2010). One popular explanation for this is…

Johnston, Jamie – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are a relatively new, low-cost resource that hold potential for improving learning in developing nations where resources are constrained and teacher expertise can be limited. However, little information currently exists about the effectiveness of leveraging MOOCs as a vehicle for teacher training. The aim of…

Klein, Alice; Starkey, Prentice; Deflorio, Lydia; Brown, Elizabeth Todd – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
Due to the socioeconomic status-related gap in early mathematical knowledge and the need to improve low-income children's readiness for school mathematics, the authors developed an intervention, "Pre-K Mathematics", and rigorously evaluated it over several studies. This math intervention has been found to be highly effective at improving…
