Abstract: All educators know that assessment evaluates and guides instruction. The authors had the opportunity to determine the effectiveness of their instructional methods on student achievement. The authors carried out their research with two classes of fourth grade students in a Title 1 elementary school. One class of 15 general education students and one of 13 Spanish bilingual education students were given pre- and post-tests before and after mathematics instructional units. The pre-assessment scores indicated the success of whole class introductory lessons and amount of student prior knowledge. The post-assessment scored indicated the effectiveness of the small group interventions given throughout the unit. The authors hypothesized that post-assessment scores would significantly correlate with District Benchmark scores at the p < .05 level. The authors also believed that mastery observed on weekly post-assessments would also significantly correlate with district benchmark evaluations of mastery at the p < .05 level. Preliminary data are inconclusive, however data collection will continue until April 5, at which time a final analysis will be conducted.
