RODRIGUEZ PENA, Juan José; AYALA JIMENEZ, Graciela Gerarda  and  LOPEZ TORRIJO, Manuel. Scholastic Achievement in Arithmetic: Learning Object in Mexican Sign Language for Deafness People. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, e038.  Epub Nov 17, 2020. ISSN 2007-7467.

The objective of this work was to obtain evidence that school achievement is favored, specifically in the area of arithmetic, with the use of a digital learning object in deaf students who communicate through the Mexican sign language. This through an experimental quantitative research that considered a sample of 30 third grade students in the municipality of Querétaro, Mexico, who were divided into two groups: control and experimental.

The instrument and the data obtained were validated using the t-test: the result was 95% confidence interval. In addition, the reliability of the previous test and the subsequent test was measured with the Pearson correlation coefficient, and school achievement was checked with the statistical indicator of Hake's normalized gain. In this way, it was concluded that school achievement is favored with the use of educational technology. It was also determined that in the experimental group a moderate improvement was observed in the arithmetic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, compared to those reported in the control group. Finally, the active participation of people with hearing impairment in education is recommended.
