Please have a look at this post that details how I plan to share the results of the extended Dr Kawashima trail that I carried out in the summer term in 32 schools in Scotland.http://hotmilkydrink.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/08/can-dr-kawashima-impact-on-maths-lts-extended-study-suggests-it-can.html
We had 16 classes with DS and 16 without. Pre and post tests were carried out and these results are at the final stage of SPSS analysis. At this stage it looks as though what we found in our small scale intervention last year is easily being replicated in this extended study. Sorry to put this up as a teaser but my excitement at soon sharing this with everyone is quite unbearable
. Our small scale intervention couldn't really allow us to make great claims about what we found but this intervention with its substantial sample coupled with the fact that schools were identified via a stratified randomized control procedure makes this a bit different. Hope to see you there at SLF2008 in September.
