Testing Educational Software for Children
The PENNlincs Lab at the Institute for Research in Cognitive Science at the University of Pennsylvania is recruiting children between the ages of 8 and 11 to test educational software for learning multiplication and division facts. This content has been selected because of its importance as a foundation in the elementary math curriculum. The purpose of the study is to compare different versions of the learning software to determine their effectiveness in helping children learn this content to high levels of proficiency.
Students who already know most or all of these multiplication and division facts by memory are not eligible to participate in the study.
This is a short screening test that you can use to decide whether you/your child would be an appropriate participant for this research study. This assessment should be completed by the child on his or her own without using a calculator or other help. At the end, you will be told whether or not you are eligible to participate.
Are you between the ages of 8 and 11 years old? Yes No
You will see a series of problems presented one at a time. You will have a short amount of time to enter your answer.
Please enter your answer without getting help from anyone else.
Also do not use a calculator or book or anything else to help you get the answer. Just give your best answer and don't worry if you make some mistakes.
When you're ready to go to the next problem, press 'Enter' or click on the Submit button.
When you have finished all of the problems, you will see a screen that tells you whether or not you meet the criteria to participate in this study.
Thanks! You're done!
