ab: The study investigated the effectiveness of an experimental mathematics
teaching program. The treatment program was primarily based upon a
large, naturalistic study of relatively effective mathematics teachers.
Students were tested before and after with a standardized test and a
content test (posttest only), which had been designed to approximate
the actual instructional content that students had received during the
treatment. Observational measures revealed that teachers generally
implemented the treatment, and analyses of product data showed that
students of treatment teachers generally outperformed those of control
teachers on both the standardized and content tests. Since strong
efforts were made to control for Hawthorne effects, it seems reasonable
to conclude that teachers and/or teaching methods can exert a
significant difference on student progress in mathematics.
