Eighth-grade students who are “algebra ready” and take an online Algebra I course because their schools do not offer the class, outperform their peers in algebra knowledge and are twice as likely to take advanced mathematics classes in high school. The findings are in a rigorous new federally funded study conducted by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC) for the Regional Educational Laboratory Northeast and Islands (REL-NEI). The multi-year study, Access to Algebra I: The Effects of Online Mathematics for Grade 8 Students, was released December 13, 2011, by the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences.
