A thirty-year look at studies on computer-assisted math

During the past 30 years, thousands of articles have been written about technology’s effects on student achievement. In order to quantify technology’s effects on math achievement, Jamaal Young at the University of Texas conducted a meta-analysis of all of the meta-analyses on the topic during the last three decades. The author found that all technology enhancements positively affected student achievement, regardless of the technology’s purpose. However, technology that helped students perform computational functions had the greatest effects on student achievement, while combinations of enhancements demonstrated the least effects on student achievement.
