Can Instructional Reform in Urban Middle Schools Help Students Narrow the Mathematics Performance Gap? Some Evidence from the QUASAR Project.
Silver, Edward A.; Lane, Suzanne
Research in Middle Level Education Quarterly, v18 n2 p49-70 Spr 1995
Compared mathematical performance of middle school students in low-income communities involved in the QUASAR project to those of a demographically similar school and of a nationally representative sample. QUASAR mathematics instruction emphasizes reasoning, problem-solving, and understanding. Quasar students outperformed NAEP's disadvantaged urban sample in all mathematics content areas, especially on conceptual understanding or problem solving tasks. (HTH)
