This project represents a continuation of the ongoing collaborative effort between the University of Oregon Center on Teaching and Learning (CTL) and Age of Learning, Inc. to evaluate the effectiveness of the ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy, a comprehensive online early learning resource for children ages 2-6.
Delivery of promoting algebra readiness curriculum materials to the US Virgin Islands.
The purpose of this project is to develop and test the effectiveness of the NumberShire Integrated Tutor System (NS1-ITS) that will be utilized to optimally scale up implementation of an evidence-based education technology tool, NumberShire 1 (NS1), in first grade classrooms.
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of the NumberShire Level 1 gaming intervention, aimed at improving mathematics achievement for first-grade students with or at risk for mathematics learning disabilities. Intervention to strategically accelerate math learning in early elementary school can help prevent costly remediation in later grades.
Project CIFOR (Collaboration Across Interdisciplinary Fields of Observational Research) is a 2-year Exploration project (Goal 1) funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES). The purpose of CIFOR is to build on and advance the observation work of four previously-conducted CTL projects.
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.
The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of a first-grade mathematics intervention called Fusion aimed at developing understanding of whole numbers for students at risk for mathematics learning disabilities. According to results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, only 42% of fourth graders performed at or above the proficient level in mathematics.
ROOTS is a Goal 3 Efficacy and Replication study designed to test the impact of a small-group (Tier 2) kindergarten, mathematics intervention program under three different conditions that vary in instructional intensity. ROOTS is a 50-lesson program focused on whole number concepts and skills and designed to teach students at risk for difficulties in mathematics.
Precision Mathematics is a 4-year Full Design and Development (DRK-12) project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The aim of the project is to develop and test 1st and 2nd grade mathematics interventions for students who are at risk for early mathematics difficulties.
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.
