  29. 29. Our Findings
  30. 30. Findings: • Our data analysis was based on the 3 key issues noted in our evaluation framework: 1. To understand the utility of the online units 2. Assess the units ease of use 3. Address any additional resources needed to implement the online units.
  31. 31. Findings for Key Issues: #1 To understand the utility of the online units Evaluator-created Survey: • Individuals surveyed had interacted with at least one unit in the Math I Lesson section • There were mixed results when asked if the unit lessons were easy to follow 2 1 2 2 1 1 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 1 2 3 4 5 6 Responses n=9 0 1 3 5 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 Strongly Disagree Disagree Not Sure Agree Strongly Agree Responses n=9
  32. 32. Stakeholder-created Survey: • Individuals surveyed were not sure the website would properly assist them with meeting the new standards with the Math I Common Core. • There were mixed results when asked if the website would engage student learning or enhance classroom instruction. n=6 N=6 0 0 3 2 1 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 3.5 Responses 0 0 3 3 0 0 1 2 3 4 Strongly Disagree DisagreeNot Sure Agree Strongly Agree 0 0 4 3 0 0 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Not Sure Agree Strongly Agree Student Engagement Improve Classroom Instruction Findings for Key Issues: #1 To understand the utility of the online units
  33. 33. Findings for Key Issues: #2: Assess the units ease of use • Statement: I am comfortable with computers and online tools. 0 0 1 2 3 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 3.5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Not Sure Agree Strongly Agree Responses 0 0 1 2 6 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neutral Agree Strongly Agree Responses Stakeholder-created Survey Evaluator-created Survey n=9 n=6

  35. 35. Findings for Key Issues: #3: Address any additional resources needed to implement the online units. • High demand for additional resources. “Most of my experience with the site has been flustering. Broken links, activities I would not use, too much „fluff‟ and not enough „meat‟. “ “Too many sites and not enough time to explore/adequately plan” Discussion Board Stakeholder-Created Survey: Evaluator-Created Survey: “The content does not connect from one unit to another.” “They can be long and the standards are sometimes not taught when I feel they need to be.”
  36. 36. Findings for Key Issues: #3: Address any additional resources needed to implement the online units. “I would simply like a good sources for activities related to each objective. “ Discussion Board Stakeholder-Created Survey: Evaluator-Created Survey: “Even if you were to follow the Math I unit plans precisely, I still feel you would have to supplement other resources to ensure student mastery of the skills.” • High demand for additional activities.
  37. 37. Recommendations
  38. 38. Recommendations: • Recommendation #1: Additional Resources Individuals voiced a strong desire to have a listing of additional resources for each lesson to serve as optional supplemental content. There were concerns over the current content contain a large amount of “filler”. • Recommendation #2: Additional Activities for all Units Individuals voiced a strong desire the have more activities included in each lesson to assist in student comprehension of the unit objectives.
  39. 39. Recommendations: • #3: Investment in Technology: Math I is a learning system delivered online. With such a technology-centric learning method, adequate computers and internet connection must be in place in order for this program to succeed. I have the resources at my school to implement The Next Generation Mathematics for WV Schools mathematics courses. 1 1 2 1 1 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 Responses “A lot of browsers in the schools are very outdated. It‟s highly possible that many of the school‟s computers will not be able to access the applets, etc. because of the outdated applets. To use this in the classroom would require 1 to 1 computing which doesn‟t happen at most schools. Many labs/computer are “tied up” at this time of the year for assessment purposes. The website seems prone to freezing/buffering.” “Some technology components cannot be used because a newer version of a program must be installed. Some content takes way too much time on simple concepts and other concepts need deeper development.” Stakeholder-Created Survey:
