NebraskaMATH: Primarily Math Research Design

Summary

NebraskaMATH: Primarily Math is a three-tiered initiative including a K-3 math specialist graduate certificate program; support for teachers as they return to the classroom as math coaches or classroom math teachers; and a research project studying the impact of Primarily Math on teacher practices, attitudes, and leadership, and student achievement and dispositions. The design includes participants, controls, and teachers in buildings with new math coaches. We describe the study's design and present initial findings related to student success as measured through the Test of Early Mathematical Ability 3rd Edition. Based on our initial data collection and analysis, we discuss pros and cons of the current research design and describe the initial and ongoing roles STEM faculty play within the research.
