|Title:||WWC Review of the Report "Help with English Language Proficiency 'HELP' Program Evaluation of Sheltered Instruction Multimedia Lessons"|
|Description:||The 2005 study, Help with English Language Proficiency 'HELP' Program Evaluation of Sheltered Instruction Multimedia Lessons, examined the effects of the Help with English Language Proficiency (HELP) computer-based supplementary curriculum on the math achievement of English language learners (ELLs). Students in nine classrooms across three Colorado school districts participated in the study. One hundred and fifty-four ELL students in grades 6 and higher were randomly assigned within their classrooms to either the HELP condition or a comparison condition. At the end of a 2.5-month implementation period, study authors compared the math test scores of students in both groups. They found that students in the HELP condition scored higher on a math achievement posttest than those in the comparison condition. The study is a well-implemented randomized controlled trial and the research described in this report meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.|
