Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI)


"Partly motivated by the 1996 National Assessment of Educational Progress scores, which were below the national average for Alabama's grade 4-8 students in mathematics and grade 8 students in science, the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) developed a statewide initiative to improve mathematics and science teaching and student achievement in kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12). The Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) is a two-year intervention intended to better align classroom practices with national and statewide teaching standards-and ultimately to improve student achievement - by providing professional development, access to materials and technology, and in-school support for teachers."
