Online Diagnostic Algebra Assessment (DAA) Study
The Technology and Assessment Study Collaborative at Boston
College (InTASC) developed tests to provide diagnostic
information about algebraic misconceptions students may
The testlets were validated during the summer and fall of
2006. InTASC is gearing up to start an experimental study
designed to assess whether instructional interventions are
effective in mediating some of the misconceptions piloted
in the summer and fall. The study is scheduled to start on
February 19, 2007 and it will run until March 23, 2007.
Algebra teachers who teach grades 8 or 9 are eligible to
participate and teachers who participate will qualify for a
a $250.00 stipend.For more information, please contact Helena Miranda at
