What does the research trial involve?
As part of the trial, 69 settings will be chosen at random to receive the Maths Champions programme for FREE, the other 69 will continue as normal and form the important ‘control group’. Randomly selecting which settings receive the programme is essential as it is the best way to find out the impact the programme has on children’s attainment.
Regardless of whether a setting randomly receives the intervention or the control group, ALL settings will:
- Inform and gain consent from parent/carers for children’s participation in the research trial
- Share setting and child information with the research team
- Work with the research team to complete assessments (taking 10 minutes per child) in September 2021 and June 2022.
