This article reviews research on the achievement outcomes of reading programs for all elementary children, Grades K through 5, applying consistent methodological standards to the research. The scope of the review includes four types of approaches: reading curricula, instructional technology, instructional process programs, and combinations of curricula and instructional process. The review concludes that instructional process programs designed to change daily teaching practices have substantially greater research support than programs that focus on curriculum or technology alone.

This paper reviews research on the achievement outcomes of mathematics programs for middle and high schools. There were 100 qualifying studies, 26 of which used random assignment to treatments. The findings revealed very small effect sizes for mathematics curricula and for computer-assisted instruction.

This article reviews the achievement outcomes of three types of approaches to improving elementary mathematics: mathematics curricula, computer-assisted instruction (CAI), and instructional process programs. Study inclusion requirements included use of a randomized or matched control group, a study duration of at least 12 weeks, and achievement measures not inherent to the experimental treatment. 87 studies met these criteria. The review concludes that programs designed to change daily teaching practices appear to have more promise than those that deal primarily with curriculum or technology alone.
