The use of copy, cover, and compare has been suggested as an effective class- room intervention procedure. The present case report examined the use of copy, cover, and compare with math facts for an elementary student with learning disabilities. Objectives. The purpose of this research was to increase the correct rate and decrease the error rate for see/write digits in multiplication using copy, cover, and compare. A second objective was to require an additional error correction procedure with copy, cover, and compare and evaluate its effects. Method. Our participant was a fourth-grade student with learning disabilities who had difficulty in math. After baseline, a copy, cover, and compare procedure was implemented. Finally, additional error drill was added to copy, cover, and compare procedure. Results. The overall outcomes indicated a significant increase in corrects and a decrease in errors with copy, cover and compare. When copy, cover, and compare was combined with error drill, corrects again improved and errors further declined. Fluency also improved with additional error drill.
