Research Projects

Middle School Intervention Project (MSIP) is an evaluation study of the effectiveness of a comprehensive intervention targeting reading intervention, school engagement, and data-based decision-making. The aim of MSIP is to increase reading achievement and reduce high school dropout among a cohort of struggling readers in six Oregon school districts.

NumberShire is a suite of internet-based gaming interventions designed to explicitly teach students in grades K-2 whole number concepts that align with the Common Core State Standards.

The purpose of the TrackTown project is to iteratively develop, and test the feasibility and promise of a multi-dimensional, multi-media curriculum on 4th and 5th grade elementary students' health, cognitive, and academic outcomes.

NumberShire is a suite of internet-based gaming interventions designed to explicitly teach students in grades K-2 whole number concepts that align with the Common Core State Standards. Numbershire II includes a series of engaging stories and narrative goals to motivate second grade students in early mathematics.

PAR (Promoting Algebra Readiness) is a Goal 2 Development and Innovation project focused on developing a print-based intervention that targets rational number concepts. The PAR intervention is designed to increase student understanding of fractions and abstract concepts of number and prepare 6th grade students experiencing difficulties in mathematics for coursework in algebra.

EVI is a Goal 3 Efficacy and Replication study of a kindergarten vocabulary intervention developed by colleagues at the University of Connecticut. CTL is a subcontract to this research with sites in Oregon.

The purpose of Project HiFi is to develop a software prototype for assessing the reading fluency of students in grades 1 - 6. Such technology will provide scoring and tracking assessments, and the capacity to link data directly to a database, among other features.

Whole Number Foundations (The FUSION Project) is a Goal 2 Development and Innovation project focused on developing a 60-lesson, print-based (Tier 2) intervention in mathematics. The FUSION intervention is designed to teach whole number concepts to first grade students who are at risk for mathematics difficulties.

KinderTEK is a Goal 2 Development and Innovation project to construct a technology-based mathematics intervention for use in kindergarten. KinderTEK is now being expanded through the Stepping Up KinderTEK project. The intervention is focused on using tablet technology (iPads) to teach critical concepts of whole number to kindergartners who are at risk for difficulties in mathematics.

Early learning in mathematics (ELM) is a Goal 3 Efficacy and Replication study focused on testing the impact of a core kindergarten mathematics program. The ELM program contains 120 lessons that address mathematics topics identified in the Common Core State Standards for kindergarten mathematics.
