The results were different for the two schools in the study. At Jackson Memorial Middle Schools, students in MathForward outscored comparison students in 2008, but the difference may have been due to chance, because it was not
statistically significant. By contrast, at Jackson High School, comparison students outscored participating
students, but these results may also have been due to chance and participating students had lower scores than comparison students in 8th grade. In the high school, impacts would have to have been large to achieve statistical significance, due to small sample sizes. There were no significant differences for boys or girls for either school, and there were not enough low-income students or students of color from the district to analyze results for these two groups of students.
