There is a soon to be published book edited by Sharon Senk and Denisse
Thompson entitled something like "What Research Tells Us About
Standards-Based Math Curricula." There is a chapter on the research
of each of the NSF-funded math curricula projects K-12. (well, maybe
only 75% of them, but close to all.) Following each of the sections
on elementary math, middle school math, and high school math, there is
a synthesis chapter and a critique of the research. The only problem
is, the book is somewhat delayed. The authors of individual chapters
may be of help. I can send anyone who wants it a copy of the
"Investigations" research (a shorter version than the chapter), which
includes results of four studies--two dissertations and two in-house
studies. Hope this helps. There is research on these curricula, and
as far as I know, little or none of it has been done by the
publishers. Yes, some of it has been done by the developers, but the
developers include top notch researchers, university professors, and
other experts who are well aware of how to deal with possible sources
of bias in conducting and interpreting research.
