In this replication study, we used the "Compared With What?" study by Bethany Rittle-Johnson and Jon R. Star as our model. The purpose of their study was to find what specific comparisons in math education should be emphasized in order to maximize learning. We used the same material of assessment and intervention as the original model as students learned to solve equations by comparing solution methods, comparing identical, and comparing problem types. The difference between the two studies is our use of the ASSISTment system. While we are able to show overall learning, we are not able to show a statistically significant difference between the conditions.
