Non-Randomized Controlled Studies

  • The ARC Center Tri-State Student Achievement Study
    The ARC Center at COMAP in Lexington, Massachusetts, received funding from NSF to carry out a large-scale study of the effects of Everyday Mathematics (EM), Investigations in Number, Data, and Space (IN), and Math Trailblazers (MT) on student performance on state-mandated standardized tests in Massachusetts, Illinois, and Washington State.
  • The Impact of Two Standards-Based Mathematics Curricula on Student Achievement
    This paper presents a quasi-experimental study using matched comparison groups to investigate the impact of one elementary and one middle school standards-based mathematics program in Massachusetts on student achievement. The study compares statewide standardized test scores of fourth-grade students using Everyday Mathematics and eighth-grade students using Connected Mathematics to test scores of demographically similar students using a mix of traditional curricula. Results indicate that students in schools using either of these standards-based programs as their primary mathematics curriculum performed significantly better on the 1999 statewide mathematics test than did students in traditional programs attending matched comparison schools. With minor exceptions, differences in favor of the standards-based programs remained consistent across mathematical strands, question types, and student sub-populations.
