Schoen, Harold, Ed.; Ziebarth, Steven W., Ed.; Hirsch, Christian R., Ed.; BrckaLorenz, Allison, Ed. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2010
The study reported in this volume adds to the growing body of evaluation studies that focus on the use of NSF-funded Standards-based high school mathematics curricula. Most previous evaluations have studied the impact of field-test versions of a curriculum. Since these innovative curricula were so new at the time of many of these studies, students…

Springer, Matthew G.; Pepper, Matthew J.; Ghosh-Dastidar, Bonnie – Journal of Education Finance, 2014
This study examines the effect of supplemental education services (SES) on student test score gains and whether particular subgroups of students benefit more from NCLB tutoring services. Our sample includes information on students enrolled in third through eighth grades nested in 121 elementary and middle schools over a five-year period comprising…

Woodward, John; Brown, Cyrus – Journal of Special Education, 2006
An important component of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards is the equity principle: All students should have access to a coherent, challenging mathematics curriculum. Many in the mathematics reform community have maintained that this principle can be achieved through one well-designed curriculum. However, the extant…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; And Others – Elementary School Journal, 1997
Explored methods for helping students generate conceptual mathematical explanations during peer-mediated learning activities. Three groups (one with training in elaborated help, one with additional training in providing conceptual explanations, and one control) were compared after 18 weeks on mathematics achievement. Found that students with…

Bartelet, Dimona; Ghysels, Joris; Groot, Wim; Haelermans, Carla; van den Brink, Henriëtte Maassen – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
This article examines an educational experiment with a unique combination of 3 elements: homework, the use of information and communication technology and a large degree of freedom of choice (student autonomy). More particularly, we study the effectiveness of a web-based intelligent tutoring system (ITS) that a school offers to its students as…
