The Impact of Graphing Calculators on High School Students' Performance on a Standardized Mathematics Test

The Impact of Graphing Calculators on High School Students' Performance on a Standardized Mathematics Test

Michelle DeLoach
Program of study: 
Despite the availability of and pressures to incorporate educational technology into secondary curriculum, schools have not shown that technology is being adequately used by educators or that students in fact know how to use them. In particular, many teachers are not using technology such as graphing calculators as an instructional mathematics resource. The purpose of this quantitative, quasi-experimental study was to determine the effects of graphing calculator use on students’ mathematical performance. To achieve this purpose, the study compared the performance of students who used a graphing calculator to complete a standardized Algebra II assessment to the performance of students who did not use a graphing calculator to complete the same assessment. Descriptive statistics were used to provide information about the grouped scores for each item, number of students who completed each item, the spread of responses across each group, the range of scores, and the mean score of each question for the control group and for the treatment group. T-tests were completed and provided comparisons of data from both the control group and treatment group responses. The results of the t- tests for independent means compared the measures of student performance with whether the student used a graphing calculator or not. Results of the t-tests found the student’s total score to be significantly higher for students who used the graphing calculator (M = 0.54) when compared to those students who did not use the graphing calculator (M = 0.42), t (51) = 2.69, p = .01.
This dissertation is dedicated to my outstanding husband Johnny; thank you for supporting me during those countless late night study sessions and encouraging me to complete this task. To my children Justin and Madison; thank you for being my inspiration and listening to me while I talked endlessly about the dissertation process. Johnny, Justin, and Madison; words cannot express how thankful I am for you and for your encouraging words, patience and understanding as time was lost from spending time with you to accomplish this goal. To my extended family, church family, and friends; thank you for understanding when I had homework and was unable to entertain or visit. Without the love and support of my family and friends, this goal would not have been accomplished.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to those who helped me to accomplish the dream of completing this dissertation. Special appreciation is extended to Dr. Sara Jimenez Soffa (mentor) for her professionalism, guidance, expertise, and leadership. Dr. Tina Chapman and Dr. Alverna Champion, I greatly appreciate your patience and guidance in assisting me with constructive feedback that assisted in the completion of my dissertation. Gratitude is extended to Donna Betts and Terry KingForbes for their guidance and expertise in completion of this dissertation and the writing process. Additionally, I would like to thank the administrative staff of the school system, the principal, faculty, staff, and students at the high school for their support and participation in the study. Most of all, I would like to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving me the foresight and ability to complete this endeavor; and to my loving, supportive family and friends who encouraged me throughout my journey.
