This study examined Southwest Minnesota high schools to identify perceptions of students regarding traditional scheduling and block scheduling. Twelve high school math teachers in Southwest Minnesota who had taught under both scheduling types at some point in their career were surveyed about their perceptions of the two scheduling types as well as training they received specific to block scheduling. Students of one math teacher who taught under both types of scheduling concurrently during the 2008-2009 school year were surveyed about their perceptions of the two scheduling types. The researcher found that most teachers preferred to teach math under the traditional schedule. Students were almost evenly divided over which scheduling type they preferred. The study also found that students in both types of math classes had similar learning experiences and that teachers had received little training specifically related to teaching math under block scheduling.Another way to measure student achievement is to look at their state-mandated test scores.
