This section situates the study in a particular methodological tradition, provides a rationale for that approach, describes the research setting and sample, and describes data collection and analysis methods.




Introduction Restates research questions, hypotheses, and variables (if relevant).

Study explores utility of technology based math intervention and its impact on achievement in elementary math.

Research Design or Tradition

Describes research approach used with rationale for its suitability for addressing the research questions, citing appropriate methodological literature.

Quasi-Experimental Pretest-Posttest Non-Equivalent Groups Design.

Research Setting/Context

Describes and justifies selection of the research setting, with background information on program, school, district, or community college, such as demographics and student achievement data.

Rural elementary school in Mid-Atlantic, 60% minority, 80% Free and reduced lunch eligible, over 75% not meeting math requirements

Research Sample and Data Sources

Explains and justifies type of sample used and how participants were selected (including population

Non-Random Convenience Sample of two elementary school classrooms with purpose to explore utility of educational intervention

Describes characteristics and size of sample (all) and/or data set

Classroom 1 (treatment group) is 22 students (11 male/11 female) of 3rd grade Classroom 2 (control group) is 20 Students (10 male/10 female)

Instruments and Procedures

Quantitative measure of student performance on state benchmark assessments in a pre/post format during a 9-week period in the academic year

Treatment or Intervention

If a treatment is used, it is described clearly and in detail.

Group 1 will be provided a treatment of utilizing mathematic applications associated with ABCYA website and corresponding standards for 20 minutes each day Group 2 will be taught using traditional standard methods

Data Collection: Describes and justifies data collection methods and procedures, including how, when, where, and by whom data were collected.

Each group will be given a unit pretest at the onset of the 9-week period and a unit preset at the conclusion of the 9-week period. Test will be administered by school personnel.
