The Results Are In: Hot Wheels Speedometry Scores Big in Fourth Grade Testing
The results of a district-wide test of the Speedometry curriculum show that Speedometry improved student learning relative to a control group. Key findings of the two-week study, which involved approximately 1,800 fourth graders in 59 classrooms, include:
Speedometry leads to improvements in student knowledge, interest and positive emotions. Also, girls’ negative emotions about science and mathematics were found to decrease as a result of Speedometry.
Students who experienced Speedometry out-performed who had not experienced Speedometry on a test of science and math content knowledge.
Students who experienced Speedometry showed greater engagement, interest, and positive emotions about the lessons than students who experienced traditional math and science lessons. To view the Executive Summary of the report on the district-wide test, click here.
