First-Year Effects of Algebra I Technology Products

  • Effects on Test Scores Were Not Statistically Different from Zero. Overall math scores for students in treatment and control classrooms were 37.3 percent correct and 38.1 percent correct, respectively. The difference was not statistically different from zero.
  • Classroom and School Characteristics Were Uncorrelated with Product Effects. The algebra I study included fewer schools, which limited the ability to estimate moderator effects. None of the classroom and school characteristics included in the model was statistically significant.
