National Science Foundation study in 4th year; Junior year for AP High School Cohorts―the project and partners are currently in year 4 of 5 year National Science Foundation supported study to accelerate the mathematics learning of previously low-performing students in high schools in Los Angeles, CA; Eldorado, IL; Mansfield, OH, and; Ypsilanti, MI. Current evaluations are tracking student outcomes on standardized tests, as well as their conceptual understanding, and the development of a peer culture and positive attitudes toward further education. Further research will continue to take place under this grant from the NSF (DRL-0822175) to study the project’s “cohort model” in which students stay together for all four years, and schools and districts become more engaged in issues of student advancement from the beginning.  The goals include on-time graduation in 4 years, passing mandated state and national exams, being eligible for college, and, upon arrival at college, readiness to take college mathematics courses for credit (without remediation).
