The Spring Math process
assess students' current skill level (takes less than five-minutes and are group administered)
summarizes the results in an easy-to-read format
provides intervention recommendations
There are two types of interventions in Spring Math: class-wide and individual.
Classwide intervention provides weekly adjustment of skill difficulty, new materials each week, summary reports reflecting classwide progress, and implementation support to promote sustained use of the intervention.
Individual intervention begins with a “drill-down” assessment process to identify the right intervention for the student.
For both intervention types, Spring Math guides the teacher step-by-step. All intervention packets are dynamically generated as they are needed to ensure they match current skill development. Spring Math's proprietary decision rules direct instructional decisions, speeding up student growth.
Spring Math helps educators avoid two of the most common causes of intervention failure: choosing the wrong intervention and failing to use the intervention.*
Spring Math simplifies intervention delivery:
by minimizing alternative causes of low mathematics performance,
using assessment data to select the right intervention for the child, and
delivering to the teacher all needed materials to conduct the intervention
The teacher only has to do the fun part—work with the student or the class as a whole for 15-20 minutes per day to raise achievement.
*Data from a randomized controlled pilot study showed that Spring Math-directed intervention produced stronger alignment with student need, increased teacher use of the intervention, and improved student learning in mathematics.
