Open Math Adoption in Elementary Schools: An Empirical Study

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

To date, very little research has been done K12 adoption on open education. We will focus on OER adoption in two school districts in the state of Washington. We compared 5,242 students who used EnagageNY Math with 6,552 students in comparable districts who used traditional curriculum. In a quasi-experimental study involving multiple regression analysis, we compared end-of-year test scores for these students. Even after controlling for socioeconomic factors, there were no statistically significant differences between the two groups.

I began researching issues related to OER in 2008. I'm passionate about increasing OER research - especially research related to efficacy and student perceptions. See http://openedgroup.org/review.

I've spent the last 18 years creating, clarifying, elaborating, and evangelizing the core ideas of open education to individuals, faculty, institutions, and governments. I've also worked to place a solid foundation of empirical research beneath these core ideas. Now, with my colleagues at Lumen Learning we're trying to change open education from a niche curiosity to a mainstream, unstoppable force for improving the quality and lowering the cost of education., Lumen Learning
