Abstract

Abstract: The study examined whether third grade students using Odyssey (Compass Learning) rather than IXL differed in TCAP math achievement scores. The design was descriptive, casual-comparative, and ex post facto. The researcher conducted a one-way ANOVA using the independent variables of Odyssey (Compass Learning) and IXL, ability levels of low and high, and gender. The dependent variable was third grade math achievement as measured by the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP). The researcher compared achievement scores to see which intervention, if either, had a significant association with TCAP math achievement scores. It was concluded that a significant correlation existed between the Odyssey (Compass Learning) and TCAP math achievement.
