MIND Institute Announces Sixth Straight Year of Dramatic Standardized Math Test Score Increases
COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 19, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Participating students in the MIND Institute's "Math+Music" program have outperformed non-participating students on standardized math tests each year for six consecutive years, according to a recent analysis by educational researchers from the University of California, Irvine. The paper describing these findings is being presented today at the prestigious national conference of the American Psychological Association in Washington, D.C. "Since the MIND Institute's first year in South Central Los Angeles, where participating children outperformed non-participants by 29 percentile points, the MIND Institute approach to teaching mathematics has established a record of measurable learning advantages for low performing as well as high performing students," according to Michael E. Martinez, Ph.D, Associate Professor of UCI's Education Department. Martinez concluded in his report that the "overall impact of the program on standardized test scores was approximately two sigma, historically considered the maximum effect achievable by an educational intervention."
