Roschelle, Jeremy; Feng, Mingyu; Murphy, Robert F.; Mason, Craig A. – Grantee Submission, 2016
In a randomized field trial with 2,850 seventh-grade mathematics students, we evaluated whether an educational technology intervention increased mathematics learning. Assigning homework is common yet sometimes controversial. Building on prior research on formative assessment and adaptive teaching, we predicted that combining an online homework…
