         There are a total of 80 students (33 males and 47 females) enrolled in the MATRIX Grant
         initiative at Martin Luther King Middle School. This includes two sixth grade classes of 23
         students each; two seventh grade classes totaling 8 students; and six 8th grade classes totaling
         49 students.

         The standardized test that we used for our baseline data is the CTB/McGraw Hill Terra Nova
         assessment. It was administered to all 5th and 6th graders in the spring of 2004. The Terra
         Nova is administered annually and was given to the 6th and 7th grade students at MLK Middle
         School on March 7, 8, 9, and 10, 2005. These results are attached along with additional
         pertinent data about MLK MS.

         The GEPA results for 2004-2005 have been reported and will be used as an indicator of need
         for the Matrix initiative and as a part of the data collection summary during year two. These
         2004-2005 math results dropped slightly with only 7% of the King Middle School students
         reaching proficiency in math. (see attached)

         The following internal assessments will be used to establish baselines and track progress in
         math achievement/technology integration:
             Connected Math Unit pre and post test for each quarter
             Quarterly Problem of the Week summary achievement data
             Report card grades: final 2005 compared to each rating period thereafter
             Student self-assessment that will also be a part of the quarterly progress reports

         In our collaboration with the Office of Equity & Accountability we have decided to compare
         8th grade Matrix student progress in math with a control group of non-Matrix math 8th grade
         students at MLK Middle School if possible.



                                              TEACHER DATA

         In addition to the school Technology Facilitator (male), there are six classroom math teachers
         (2 males, 4 females) participating in the MATRIX grant. Among these staff members there is
         a wide range of teaching experience from seven years to thirty years and this experience has
         been largely on the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade levels.
         The LoTi assessment was taken in May 2005; these results have been recorded, analyzed,
         summarized, and submitted with the final report. Attached please find teacher reflections on
         their individual LoTi levels and the goals they have set to improve their levels of technology
         integration.
