Research Report - Opportunities to Learn in PROM/SE Classrooms: Teachers' Reported Coverage of Mathematics Content

Abstract

Promoting Rigorous Outcomes in Mathematics and Science Education (PROM/SE) has published volume 6 of The PROM/SE Research Report titled "Opportunities to Learn in PROM/SE Classrooms: Teachers' Reported Coverage of Mathematics Content." This report examines the pattern of reported mathematics content coverage in elementary grades classrooms in the PROM/SE districts. In these PROM/SE districts about 2625 teachers (about 525 teachers at each of the five grade levels) reported on their mathematics content coverage. Our results indicate that there is great variation across classrooms in the mathematics content coverage, suggesting the presence of enormous inequalities in opportunities to learn mathematics content. This surprising variability extends not only between districts but also across the hallway within the same school. This issue and past issues of the PROM/SE Research Report are available for downloading from www.promse.msu.edu in the "research and results" section.
