Ready To Teach Algebra is an online professional development program to support mathematics teachers, created jointly by Concord Consortium’s Seeing Math Telecommunications Project and the PBS TeacherLine Project, with funding from the U.S. Department of Education (grant # R286A000006-03). The overall goal of Ready To Teach Algebra is “To improve student achievement by developing high quality, standards-based digital professional development to teachers and by developing high quality, standards-based digital classroom content.” The program is built around the major themes presented in today’s algebra texts and typical algebra curricula: Ratio, Proportion, and Scale; Linear Functions; Transformations of Linear Functions; Linear Equations; Quadratic Functions; Transformations of Quadratic Functions; Quadratic Equations; and Descriptive Statistics. In addition, an Overview and a Final Project section frame the overall program. In the past several years, the U.S. Department of Education has established new priorities for evaluation, with a strong emphasis on experimental and quasi- experimental research. This has resulted in Concord Consortium’s development of a comprehensive research plan for the overall Seeing Math project beginning with the 2003 – 2004 school year and extending through the 2004 – 2005 school year. This final evaluation report focuses on the research and evaluation efforts conducted by the formative evaluation conducted by Edcentric and the quantitative evaluation conducted by Hezel Associates. Edcentric and Hezel Associates are the external evaluators for the Ready to Teach Algebra project. The evaluation report focuses on the following two objectives of the Seeing Math Telecommunications Project produced by Concord Consortium: • Evaluate the quality and usefulness of project materials and strategies. • Research the effect and impact of the Seeing Math materials.
