Abstract

AnimalWatch is a mathematics tutor with enhanced adaptive feedback precisely tailored to girls' instructional needs. Three evaluation studies with fifth grade students support our hypothesis that adaptive feedback is beneficial to girls' math confidence. We have also had high levels of teacher participation including classroom activities, after-school presentations and summer workshops. This paper describes features of the tutor, evaluation studies, work with classroom teachers and dissemination activities.
