Evaluating the impact of supplemental online math instruction and intervention
This study investigated the impact of the supplemental online math instruction and intervention program TenMarks.com on student achievement as measured by assessment scores in a school in California’s Central Valley. Sixty-three students from two different fifth grade classes participated in the study. Both classes were taught by the author. The scores on the standard curriculum chapter test and TenMarks.com post-test of students who supplemented their in-class instruction with TenMarks.com were compared to the scores of students who did not use TenMarks.com during the course of the study. The results found no statistically significant difference in chapter test scores from the standard curriculum. However, significantly higher achievement was found on TenMarks.com post-test scores for those who used the online program.
