    Request for Tender for Research on the impact of Project Maths on the performance of students in mathematics in senior cycle

    The NCCA is in the final stages of a process of reviewing the impact of Project Maths on the performance of students in mathematics at second level and where they proceed to mathematics studies and other relevant studies at third level. A three-stranded approach was adopted as set out below.

    Table 1: Focus of each strand of review

    Strand

    Focus 

    One

    Examine the impact of Project Maths on the performance of students in mathematics in junior cycle.

    Two

    Examine the impact of Project Maths on the performance of students in mathematics where they proceed to mathematics studies and other relevant studies at third level. 

    Three

    Examine the impact of Project Maths on the performance of students in mathematics in senior cycle.

     

    The first and second strands of this review were commissioned to external independent evaluators and completed in 2017. NCCA is now seeking proposals for strand 3, the commissioning of a researcher or group of researchers to conduct research examining the impact of Project Maths on the performance of students in mathematics in senior cycle.
