Brian Rowan, Burke A. Hinsdale Collegiate Professor in Education, and David Cohen, John Dewey Collegiate Professor of Education, School of Education, and the Walter H. Annenberg Professor of Education Policy and professor of public policy at the Ford School of Public Policy, have been awarded a grant from the University of Pennsylvania/Hewlett, William and Flora Foundation, for a project entitled "Center on Continuous Instructional Improvement (CCII) - Issues in Scaling." The grant amount of $142,308 is for the period February 1, 2009, to November 17, 2011.

This project will extend an existing collaboration among CCII researchers and Agile Mind (AM) begun in December 2006 with a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. In the collaboration, CCII researchers at the U-M have worked with AM staff and researchers at the Dana Center to study implementation of AM's Algebra I services in more than 250 Texas schools and to estimate the association between school-wide use of AM services and students' mathematics achievement.
