4 An independent, third-party evaluation by Hezel Associates concluded that Study Guides were effective at increasing student performance. Study Guide users who took all three retests passed significantly more tests than did students who did not use Study Guides. While 46% of users passed at least 2 of the 3 tests, only 19% of non users passed at least 2 tests. The Hezel report concluded that they “…found significantly better results for students who used the Study Guide in writing in their retest scores than non-users. Furthermore, for students who report more frequent Study Guide use, [they] found significantly better results in both writing and math.” (13) Hezel also concluded that their analysis “…emphasizes the advantage that the use of the Study Guide provides for Hispanic students.” (13) Personalized Study Guide Overview

8 What Differentiation Is—And Is Not A differentiated classroom offers a variety of learning options designed to tap into different readiness levels, interests, and learning profiles. In a differentiated class, the teacher uses: a variety of ways for students to explore curriculum content. a variety of sense-making activities or processes through which students can come to understand and “own” information and ideas. a variety of options through which students can demonstrate or exhibit what they have learned. –Tomlinson http://www.ericdigests.org/1996-3/mixed.htm Personalized Study Guide Overview
