A new study by Student Achievement Partners identifies middle school interventions that can increase later Algebra success.
We’re excited to share the results of a groundbreaking new study by Student Achievement Partners! The study, “Preparation for Success in Algebra: Exploring Math Education Relationships by Analyzing Large Data Sets (EMERALDS),” is one of the largest longitudinal assessments of what mathematics prepares students for success in Algebra.
The study was designed to explore ways to better support students who are Black, Latino, English learner-designated, experiencing poverty, and/or female to achieve better results in Algebra. It involved a large-scale, four-year longitudinal assessment of data sets from more than a million students representing a broad range of racial/ethnic backgrounds, income levels, and geographic regions. The main results of the study were based on detailed, longitudinal data from 100,000 Florida students using our MATHia software, which provided the fine-grained information necessary to identify middle school topics that led to success in Algebra.
We are committed to advancing equity in education and helping all students learn, and we are thrilled to have the efficacy of MATHia validated in this research.
