TIMU Comparison Group

Teachers not interested in enrolling in the TIMU program may wish to participate in the comparison group in the TIMU study. Each comparison cohort teacher will receive a $200 annual stipend for up to four years for participating in the study tasks described below.


We are asking TIMU comparison group teachers and their students to participate in a four-year study. The study has been approved by the Miami University Institutional Review Board for Human Subjects Research (approval number 11-187). The study tasks include administering tests and surveys to students twice each academic year, inviting researchers to observe your class twice each year, and participating in one interview and round of teacher surveys each year. Each teacher will receive student test data to contribute to classroom assessment measures to be used as his/her discretion.
