IES Contract

Title: Teachley Problem-Solving Assessment to Support Teachers to Assess and Promote Students' Mathematical Thinking
Center: NCER Year: 2020
Principal Investigator: Carpenter, Kara Awardee: Teachley, LLC
Program: Small Business Innovation Research      [Program Details]
Award Period: 8 months (06/15/2020 – 02/15/2021) Award Amount: $199,995
Type: Phase I Development Award Number: 91990020C0071

The project will develop a prototype of a formative assessment dashboard for teachers to view, monitor, and gain insight from students' digital work in mathematics to inform instruction. In Phase I, the team will develop a prototype of the formative assessment tool to support teachers' pedagogical approaches, identify areas for personalized intervention, and plan math discussions that address student misconceptions and support peer-to-peer learning. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study with 3 fifth-grade teachers and 75 students, the researchers will examine whether the prototype functions as planned, if educators can use the prototype to track student progress, and if teachers believe that the prototype can facilitate formative assessment in ways that can sharpen instruction and deepen student learning.
