Abstract

This study assessed the effects of the Rocket Math program on the math fluency skills of a first grade student at risk for school failure. The student received instruction in the Rocket Math program over 6 months. He was assessed using a pre-and posttest curriculum-based measurement (CBM) and individualized fluency checkouts within the program. On the CBM pretest, he completed 10 problems correct in 1 minute. On the CBM posttest, he finished 21 problems correct in 1 minute. On the Rocket Math fluency checks, the student’s problems correct per minute increased from 19 (Level A on first assessment) to 26 (Level M on third assessment session). He had few errors and averaged 23.1 problems correct per minute on the fluency checks. Implications for further research are discussed.
