ARMT Change in Percent Proficient in Mathematics from 2005 to 2012 Grade 3 74 to 85 = 11 Grade 4 74 to 86 = 12 Grade 5 72 to 92 = 20 Grade 6 67 to 77 = 10 Grade 7 57 to 72 = 15 Grade 8 63 to 79 = 16 *Most students are served two times each day – once in math and once in science – 180 days each year. **AMSTI is actually two initiatives in one: Math and Science. AMSTI has greatly increased the number of students scoring Proficient according to the state’s accountability measure. After becoming a state line item in 2006, AMSTI experienced strong growth in serving schools, teachers and students. In 2009, AMSTI’s funding was dramatically decreased. Since then, a few systems were able to “buy in” during tough economic times in order to provide AMSTI training, resources, and on-site support for their teachers and students. Landmark USDE Study of AMSTI: After 1 year of teacher training, achievement in an AMSTI school for mathematics was the equivalent of 28 days of additional student progress (almost 1 ½ months) over students receiving conventional math instruction in control schools. The cumulative effect after 2 years of teacher training, was the equivalent of 50 days of additional student progress (2 ½ months) based on the 180 day school year. Student learning in an AMSTI school is greater than the student learning in a Non-AMSTI school for the same amount of time spent in class. AMSTI accelerates student achievement and closes achievement gaps. The USDE Study found reading achievement gains equivalent to 40 additional days of student progress in AMSTI schools over Non-AMSTI schools. Going in the Right Direction! Scale scores for student science achievement were even 20% greater than the strong gains for math. The science assessment is not given in consecutive years, so the study could not convert the science gains into “additional days” of student learning.
