This Interactive Qualifying Project involved the design and fulfillment of a study pertaining to the education of eighth-grade math students by computer-based tutoring (the ASSISTments system). The experiment evaluated the effect of combining mastery learning with retesting and relearning in an experimental group compared to control that receives only mastery training. Data produced by the study shows that by using the ASSISTments program to retest students they are capable of gaining significantly greater retention than control while requiring less educator involvement.
