Schenke, Katerina; Nguyen, Tutrang; Watts, Tyler W.; Sarama, Julie; Clements, Douglas H. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
We examined whether African American students differentially responded to dimensions of the observed classroom-learning environment compared with non-African American students. Further, we examined whether these dimensions of the classroom mediated treatment effects of a preschool mathematics intervention targeted at students from low-income…

Babaali, Parisa; Gonzalez, Lidia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Supporting student success in entry-level mathematics courses at the undergraduate level has and continues to be a challenge. Recently we have seen an increased reliance on technological supports including software to supplement more traditional in-class instruction. In this paper, we explore the effects on student performance of the use of a…

Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Farran, Dale; Lipsey, Mark; Hofer, Kerry G.; Bilbrey, Carol – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
Studies show that the mathematics test-score gap is evident at every level of schooling and can be linked to students' earlier performance. For example, a mathematics performance gap was found in children as young as three years of age (Case & Griffin, 1990; Jordan, Huttenlocher, & Levine, 1992). Addressing the mathematics performance gap…

Brantlinger, Andrew; Smith, Beverly – Teachers College Record, 2013
Background/Context: For more than a decade, large alternative teacher certification programs (ATCP) such as the New York City Teaching Fellows (NYCTF) have provided qualified applicants with fast-track or "early entry" routes to paid teaching. While early-entry ATCPs enjoy powerful support in the public and private sectors, critics…

Petrillo, Joseph – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
High failure rates in calculus have plagued students, teachers, and administrators for decades, while science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programmes continue to suffer from low enrollments and high attrition. In an effort to affect this reality, some educators are "flipping" (or inverting) their classrooms. By flipping, we…

Scavuzzo-Despagni, Patricia – ProQuest LLC, 2011
In education, there is an increasing emphasis on the use of data in schools. Data are reported on academic achievement in school report cards each year. Administrators use data for curricular and evaluative purposes. Teachers are provided with data to improve their pedagogy. All of this data is based on student academic performance; however,…

Incikabi, Lutfi; Ozgelen, Sinan; Tjoe, Hartono – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2012
This study aimed to compare Mathematics and Science programs focusing on TIMSS content domains of Numbers and Biology that produced the largest achievement gap among students from Turkey and the USA. Specifically, it utilized the content analysis method within Turkish and New York State (NYS) frameworks. The procedures of study included matching…

Casler-Failing, Shelli L. – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2018
An action research case study was conducted to investigate the effects of incorporating LEGO robotics into a seventh-grade mathematics curriculum focused on the development of proportional reasoning through the lens of Social Constructivist Theory. This research, which was part of a larger study, reports the findings when LEGO EV3 robots were…

Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie – American Educational Research Journal, 2008
A randomized-trials design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of a preschool mathematics program based on a comprehensive model of research-based curricula development. Thirty-six preschool classrooms were assigned to experimental (Building Blocks), comparison (a different preschool mathematics curriculum), or control conditions. Children were…

Marchand, Richard; Pickreign, Jamar; Howard, Keary – Journal of American Indian Education, 2005
This study explores differences in mathematics assessment results between American Indian students in Western New York and their Anglo peers. The sample consisted of 2,256 fourth grade students (Native = 323 Anglo = 1933) and 2,475 eighth grade students (Native = 353 Anglo = 2122). Scores from New York State's Fourth and Eighth Grade Math…

Wladis, Claire; Offenholley, Kathleen; George, Michael – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2014
This study hypothesizes that course passing rates in remedial mathematics classes can be improved through early identification of at-risk students using a department-wide midterm, followed by a mandated set of online intervention assignments incorporating immediate and elaborate feedback for all students identified as "at-risk" by their…

Herrmann, Mariesa Ann – ProQuest LLC, 2012
This dissertation consists of essays on three inputs into the educational production function: curriculum, peers, and teachers. The chapters are linked by their focus on understanding the importance of these inputs for student achievement and by their exploitation of the exact timing of events (i.e., student mobility, receipt of special education…
