SRI Study on ASSISTments Finds Boost in Math Achievement

Oct 25, 2016

ASSISTMENTS’ ACHIEVEMENT: What does a heavyweight efficacy study look like? SRI just published its research on ASSISTments, an online supplemental curriculum tool built Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Spanning more than four years and covering 2,850 seventh-grade students across 43 schools in Maine, the study found that the tool “significantly increased student scores on an end-of-the-year standardized mathematics assessment as compared with a control group,” and “students with low prior mathematics achievement benefited most.” The study is funded by a $3.5 million grant awarded in April 2012 by the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences
