Abstract: 

The purpose of this study was to compare the performances of fifth grade elementary school students who participated-with those who did not participate in Roshd new teaching method (Roshed Multimedia Program, MRP) on final math exam with control of participants' IQ scores, in Ahvaz, Iran. The attitudes of all the teachers (N = 104) who were involved in MRP program were investigated regarding the effectiveness of this new program. A total of 491 boy and girl students were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The instruments of this study consisted of: school final math exam, a coordinated math test, Raven IQ scale, and an attitude scale. Nine hypotheses were tested and the results indicated that there was no significant difference between the math scores of those who did and those who did not participate in MRP. However, significant difference was found between the performances on math exam of girls who participated in MRP as compared to those who did not. This meaningful difference can perhaps be attributed to the motivation and job satisfaction of women and also to the effective management of girl schools that conducted the project. The findings of attitude questionnaire indicated that there was an inverse relationship between teachers' length of service and their attitude toward the effectiveness of MRP. The relationship was significant at P<0.05. In terms of academic degrees and gender no significant difference was observed in the attitudes of teachers toward the effectiveness of MRP. But teachers who had access to adequate educational facilities and equipment to make better use of MRP showed a more positive attitude. It is, therefore, suggested that the educational organization in Ahvaz should pay more attention to improve the effectiveness of this new teaching method.
