The Effectiveness of Computer-Aided Instruction
in Math
4
A MATH Problem
  • Strong math foundation is the cornerstone of a
    child's education
  • Achievement in math is the gateway to higher
    education and access in STEM careers
  • Math is still a difficult subject area to staff
    and an Achievement Gap still persists
  • Need creative, effective ways to teach math more
    effectively, meet AYP goals and close the gap

5
Challenging Factors
  • All students deserve equity
  • Resources not fairly allocated
  • Shortage of qualified teachers
  • Teachers teaching out of subject without
    adequate training
  • Achievement Gap extends beyond economic
    disadvantaged to include ESL and SWD in order to
    "raise the floor"

6
A MATH Solution
  • I CAN Learn serves as a complete full
    curriculum Instructional Improvement System (IIS)
  • proven to work at scale in independent
    scientifically based research studies
  • demonstrated ability to address challenges to
    equity and achievement in math

7
How the I CAN Learn Program Works
  • Full curriculum IIS delivering standards-based
    mathematics instruction
  • Works on multiple OS platforms and hardware
    configurations
  • Scalable as needed to meet school or district
    needs
  • Custom curriculum alignment to state, district
    and school standards
  • High-stakes test prep

8
The I CAN Learn Program
  • Database of over 500 lessons
  • Fundamentals of Math - 121 lessons, over 40
    hours of instructional video
  • Pre-Algebra, Algebra and Geometry - 424 lessons,
    over 120 hours of instructional video
  • Primary Components
  • Student Courseware one to one self-paced
    correlated CAI
  • Classroom Explorer Class Management System
    (CMS) - progress, reports, administrative tasks

9
The I CAN Learn Student Courseware
  • CAI teaches curriculum via multimedia
    presentations
  • Gives mathematical foundation of a
  • math concept
  • Brings to life the real-world application
  • of a math concept
  • Content presented with clarity not
  • feasible without the use of technology

Problem Set of the Day
11
Classroom Explorer CMS
  • Used exclusively by the teacher
  • Real-time assessment
  • Identify students needs
  • Resource allocation
  • Efficient learning environment

12
Classroom Explorer CMS primary interface
  • Establish lesson orders
  • Customize grading scales
  • Tailor lesson difficulty to address student
    needs
  • Assign and grade reinforcement
  • exercises
  • Monitor progress

13
Assessment components
  • Universal Math Assessment
  • initial diagnostic test
  • Develop individualized instruction plans
  • Diagnostic reviews
  • Cumulative tests
  • Closure quizzes for each lesson

14
Gradebook
  • Up to the minute overview of class, student
    progress
  • Actual student responses
  • Data-driven instruction
  • Additional needs identified - extra help or
    "hold no child back"

15
Reports
  • Class-wide trends
  • Identify trouble with a particular concept
  • Grade reports and attendance
  • Remote reporting of data on a student, school or
    district level

16
Meeting the Challenges of the Modern Classroom
  • CAI introduces technology into the classroom
  • Elevates and standardizes the quality of
    instruction
  • Delivers same content and a consistent level of
    instruction to all students
  • Addresses schools suffering from staff
    shortages/teachers teaching out of field
  • Allow teachers to focus on students needs
  • Ensures equitable distribution of resources

17
Educational Benefits of CAI
  • Randomized Control Trial (RCT) at scale -
    Princeton University/Federal Reserve Bank 2009
  • 3 states, 3 school districts, 17 schools, 3541
    students, 60 teachers
  • Study targeted Pre-Algebra and Algebra skills

18
Technologys Edge
  • Students randomly assigned to CAI scored higher
    than students randomly assigned to traditional
    instruction
  • Effectiveness due to increased individualized
    instruction
  • Effectiveness seen with students in larger
    classes and classes with higher absentee rates
  • Cost-effective alternative to reducing class size

19
Salient Findings from American Economic Journal
  • At-scale RCT involved at-risk and minority
    students
  • 1/2 grade levels of increased mastery of
    Pre-Algebra/Algebra content
  • Closed the achievement gap by 1/3 on the NAEP
    Test

20
Meet Your AYP Goals
  • Case Study - Williamsport Area School District,
    PA
  • Increased achievement measured on state
    assessment PSSA
  • Student achievement among ALL groups
  • EDs improved from 32 proficient or advanced to
    78
