Supporting Students with Calculation Difficulties. An Intervention Study to support Students with low Mathematics Achievement in Low Track and Special Education Schools (ScaRf)
Full Metadata Record
Students in grade 5th (Low Track and Comprehensive School) and 7th (Special School) (N=539)
Non-probability Sample: Availability Sample
The project aimed at developing, implementing and evaluating an intervention program targeted at supporting the basic mathematical knowledge of students with low calculation skills in secondary school (Grade 5 in Low Track and Comprehensive Schools, Grade 7 in Special Education Schools). Considering previous research results it was assumed that supporting basic mathematical knowledge should also lead to higher mathematics achievement. In addition the effects of different types of support were evaluated. Therefore, the sample of students with weak calculation abilities was divided into two intervention groups and one control group. For a period of 14 weeks the intervention groups received support in basic mathematical knowledge („Sicher im mathematischen Basisstoff“, SimBa). The first experimental group was taught in small learning groups and was closely supported by the teacher. The second experimental group received the training in partly integrated into the regular classroom teaching (autonomous work with diagnose directed material for two lessons per week, one additional lesson with support). The control group didn’t receive any special support. At the end of the support period and after three month the mathematics was tested. The results show that students of the intervention groups as well as the control group showed a significant increase in their mathematical achievement.
