A study examined effects of peer-assisted learning strategies (PALS) and curriculum-based measurement (CBM) on the mathematics performance of 92 secondary students with disabilities. PALS/CBM was implemented twice weekly and CBM weekly for 15 weeks. PALS/CBM students improved their computation math skills significantly more than controls, but not concepts/application math skills.
