More Research Is Needed on the System of Least Prompts

Tue, 9 Jan 2018 10:41:28 EDT

The System of Least Prompts (SLP) is a practice that involves defining and implementing a hierarchy of prompts to assist students in learning a skill. The WWC reviewed the research on SLP and its impacts on children and students with intellectual disability. There are no group design studies of SLP in the Children and Students with Intellectual Disability topic area and the evidence from single-case design studies does not reach the threshold to include single-case design evidence in the effectiveness ratings for any domains in the topic area. Based on this review, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of SLP on children and students with intellectual disability.

More Research is Needed on the Impacts of Accelerated Math on Secondary Students

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 10:36:19 EDT

Accelerated Math is a software tool that customizes math assignments for students in grades K-12 and helps teachers monitor student progress in math. The WWC reviewed studies on Accelerated Math secondary mathematics content, which includes Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. There are currently no studies of the Accelerated Math secondary mathematics content that meet WWC group design standards. Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the curriculum’s impacts on the mathematics achievement of secondary students. More research is needed to determine the curriculum’s effects on the mathematics achievement of secondary students.
