Instructional Practices and Student Math Achievement: Correlations from a Study of Math Curricula

This evaluation brief is directed to researchers and adds to the research base about instructional practices that are related to student achievement. Additional evidence on these relationships can suggest specific hypotheses for future study of instruction practices, which, in turn, will provide research evidence that could inform professional development of teachers and the writing of instructional materials.

The results of this study reveal a pattern of relationships in first and second grade classrooms that are largely consistent with earlier research, but not in every case.
