The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC), a federally funded organization that scans educational research for high-quality studies, recently reviewed our 2008 study of the Technology Enhanced Elementary and Middle School Science (TEEMSS) software and materials. The WWC reported, “TEEMSS was found to have potentially positive effects on general science achievement for elementary school students in grades 3-4.”
Teachers and administrators want evidence that software and other instructional materials help students learn. As educational researchers, we conduct studies to help answer that question. We’re pleased to be recognized by What Works Clearinghouse, the most trusted source of scientific evidence for what works in education.
