Impact of Hybrid Algebra 1 Instruction on Student Achievement: None


Hybrid Algebra 1 Instruction combines traditional face-to-face instruction with an online program. This study used a two-cohort sample with 25 high schools in year 1 (SY 07/08: 13 treatment and 12 control) and 22 in year 2 (SY 08/09: 11 and 11), the randomized sample included 6,908 students, 61.4 percent of whom were in rural schools.

The study, Effects of the Kentucky Virtual Schools hybrid program for algebra I on grade 9 student math achievement, found that the hybrid class format was no more effective at increasing student achievement and future coursetaking in math than algebra offered in the traditional face-to-face format.
