Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Mathematics--Study and teaching (Elementary); Mathematical ability--Testing;
Throughout the last few decades the importance of reading instruction has been the focus for schools and school districts across the nation. At Lincoln Elementary School in Waterloo, Iowa the focus has been no different. However, in the last two years, academic achievement in the area of math has become as important as reading with the advent of No Child Left Behind.
Although teachers were told that math was important, they lacked a required curriculum until a year after math became a focus of student achievement. The purpose of this study is to answer the following question: Did the absence of a math curriculum have an impact on student achievement at Lincoln Elementary School on three math sub-tests on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills?
