Abstract

Europe and the U.S. both face the challenges of urban schools with low-achieving adolescent learners, many of whom are not proficient in the language of instruction. This paper describes the deployment and evaluation of the AnimalWatch intelligent tutoring system for mathematics in challenging classrooms. Previous studies demonstrated that AnimalWatch benefits 12-14 year-old students in relatively controlled conditions. The current study indicates that the system can help older, very low-achieving students in challenging secondary schools that serve diverse student populations.
