Great Education Technology Story: CPS Student Response System helps to improve FCAT scores

7th Grade Math Teacher shows clear learning outcome improvements while engaging students with this interactive education technology.

As announced last week, one of our two winners in this contest was Juanita Rodriguez, 7th Grade Math Teacher at Don Estridge High Tech Middle School in Florida. Rodriguez employed CPS (Classroom Performance System) response systems from eInstruction in her class for the last six years and has continuously improved learning outcomes and student engagement year over year.

Juanita and I spoke the other day and talked about her wonderful results with this technology. She started using the CPS clickers about 6 years ago, really stepped up their use 4 years ago, and is now using them daily. The clickers allow her to know instantly when a student doesn’t understand a concept she is teaching. The types of math subjects she is covering include geometry, pre-algebra, integers, and statistics.

The benchmark by which success has been defined in this application of education technology has been Florida’s standardized FCAT test. The FCAT is the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, which measures student performance on selected benchmarks in Reading, Math, Writing, and Science. Rodriguez has been able to improve the percentage of students with FCAT math scores that indicate learning gains from 80% to 97% with the help of the CPS technology (very impressive!).
