The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of Study Island on the mathematical achievement of self-contained seventh grade Adaptive Learning Support (ALS) and Behavior Learning Support (BLS) students with learning disabilities. The measurement tool was the online Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test. This study involved the use of a pretest/posttest designed to compare data from September 2012 to data from February 2013. Achievement gains were not statistically significant. Research in the area of high-tech mathematical interventions should continue given the increase in accountability for all students at the federal, state, and local level.
