    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 or by phone at 617-552-3646.
