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…

Yang, Christine K. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
Mathematics education has emerged to be of prime importance in the United States, as American students' performance has shown to be consistently and significantly lower than many other nations in the world (Rampey, Dion, & Donahue, 2009; National Center for Education Statistics, n.d.; OECD Programme for International Student Assessment, n.d.).…

Crowe, Elizabeth Coyne; Connor, Carol McDonald; Mazzocco, Michele M. M. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
The purpose of this research is to examine whether the effect of mathematics instructional strategies depends on first graders' entering mathematics skills. In particular, the authors compare Saxon Math, which is a highly scripted whole class mathematics core curriculum and Saxon Math supplemented with student/peer assisted learning opportunities.…

Holmes, Amy B. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
Four figures and three tables are appended.There is growing consensus among researchers, educators, and policy makers about the need for greater emphasis on ambitious student-centered mathematics instruction in light of mounting concern about student mathematics performance in the intermediate grades and beyond. To facilitate educators' adoption…

Wayne, Andrew; Garet, Michael; Taylor, James; Song, Mengli – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2010
This paper will describe results concerning the impact of the PD on the three primary study outcomes: teacher knowledge of rational number topics, teacher instructional practices, and student achievement in rational number topics. All analyses are completed. However, the results cannot be shared at this time because the report is currently under…

Williams, Laura K.; Mendiburo, Maria; Hasselbring, Ted – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
A strong understanding of fractions is vital to later success in mathematics. However, research has consistently shown that fractions are one of the most difficult mathematical concepts for elementary school students to master. To attempt to remedy this deficit, the authors began a project called Helping At-risk students Learn Fractions (HALF) in…

Yuan, Kun; Engberg, John; Kaufman, Julia; Hamilton, Laura; Hill, Heather; Umland, Kristin; McCaffrey, Daniel – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
High-quality measures of instructional practice are essential for research and evaluation of innovative instructional policies and programs, as well as for providing feedback to teachers and administrators. In this study, the authors examined whether using anchoring vignettes in web-based surveys improved the validity of teachers' self-assessments…

Jitendra, Asha K.; Dupuis, Danielle N.; Rodriguez, Michael C. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2012
The present research assessed the efficacy of two tutoring protocols for improving the mathematics outcomes of at-risk third-grade students. Results indicated that students in the schema-based instruction (SBI) group outperformed students in the control group on word problem solving performance after 30 hours of problem-solving experience, but the…

Wang, Ye; Gushta, Matthew – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
The No Child Left Behind Act resulted in increased school-level implementation of assessment-based school interventions that aim to improve student performance. Diagnostic assessments are included among these interventions, designed to help teachers use evidence about student performance to modify and differentiate instruction and improve student…

Kidd, Julie K.; Gadzichowski, K. Marinka; Gallington, Debbie A.; Boyer, Caroline E.; Pasnak, Robert – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2012
The authors' purpose was to study the efficacy of patterning instruction in improving the reading and mathematics proficiency of first grade children. Patterning instruction was compared to equal time and effort spent on instruction on reading or mathematics or social studies, which are control conditions in this experiment. The question for…

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…

Gandhi, Allison Gruner; Slama, Rachel; Park, So Jung – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Over the past twenty years, efforts to turn around low-performing schools have increasingly become a central component of federal and state education policy agendas. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the impact of the Wraparound Zones Initiative (WAZ), a program supported by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education…

Silander, Megan; Moorthy, Savitha; Dominguez, Ximena; Hupert, Naomi; Pasnik, Shelley; Llorente, Carlin – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Persistent inequalities in the academic learning trajectories of underserved students have led to a growing interest in interventions for young children who are at higher risk for academic difficulties later on. This study's primary goal was to understand how the integration of video, computer games and associated hands-on activities impacts…

Mac Iver, Martha Abele; Mac Iver, Douglas J. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2014
Attendance is probably the most fundamental behavioral indicator of student engagement with school. Though many students fall off-track to success for the first time in ninth grade, poor attendance patterns often begin increasing in middle school and become worse in high school. Missing school during the secondary grades can often be traced to low…

Blank, Rolf K.; de las Alas, Nina – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2010
This meta analysis study focused on identifying and analyzing research studies that measured effects of teacher professional development with a content focus on math or science. This meta analysis was carried out to address two primary questions: (1) What are the effects of content-focused professional development for math and science teachers on…
