Assessing the Quality and Quantity of Student Discourse in Mathematics Classrooms Year 1 Results
Abstract"The Oregon Mathematics Leadership Institute (OMLI) is a 5-year project funded by the National Science Foundation under the Mathematics and Science Partnership program. OMLI is a partnership between Oregon State University, Portland State University, Teachers Development Group, 10 Oregon school
districts, and RMC Research Corporation. In its third year of operation, OMLI is working to build a cadre
of school- and district-based intellectual leaders and master mathematics teachers through a series of
intensive summer institutes and follow-up academic year professional development.
In addition to a variety of program evaluation activities, the OMLI evaluation includes a research study component that addresses the following research question: Can student achievement in mathematics be significantly improved by increasing the quantity and
quality of meaningful mathematical discourse in mathematics classrooms?"
