WestEd, a non-profit education research organization, is partnering with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and ASSISTments to conduct research funded by the U.S. Department of Education. We are looking at the learning impact of mathematical review strategies that are known to boost students’ scores on cumulative exams and high stakes tests. The strategies involve different orderings of mathematics problems. The study involves assigning different sets of mathematics problems to your class(es), but all students will see the same problems. All problems are aligned with the Common Core Standards.
The results of the study will help determine the extent to which this math intervention may have positive beneficial outcomes for students learning mathematics. Additionally, you will receive up to $1000 over the course of the study for completing all study activities.
We are currently seeking 6th grade mathematics teachers. The study will take place during the 2023-2024 school year.
ASSISTments Teacher is a free, research-based, formative assessment math platform used nationally by over 18,000 teachers and 500,000 students, primarily in grades 3-10.
