For this project, three EdReady learning modules were developed, two of which were embedded in courses at CSULB (secondary mathematics student teaching seminar—EDSS 473; mathematics education technology course—MTED 301). Approximately 440 students experienced the two, coursed-based modules.
The overwhelming majority of these students believed the units helped them to expand and / or review their understanding of grades 6-12 mathematics and they enjoyed exploring this content in EdReady. Further, over 90% of students (EDSS 473) could envision how to utilize EdReady as a learning tool in a secondary mathematics course.
All this data showed me that the EdReady system enhanced my [pre-service teacher] students' learning and I love that this format helped them with skills they might have forgotten from 6–12 grade math . . . . The way I know my students seemed to enjoyed [sic] the online formatting was they not only spent a lot of time on the system (average of 4 hours), but I noticed that the majority of the students used the system repeatedly during the semester even after all the EdReady assignments were turned in."
