The focus of this non-experimental correlation designed study was to investigate the relationships between the use of teacher-made instructional videos for online parental remediation in algebraic content and parental self-efficacy and students’ mathematical achievement in alternative education. The population of this study consisted of a group of 28 parents and their children who were students enrolled in an alternative school in the Southeastern United States. Multiple forms of data were analyzed that included information gained from surveys, website analytics, student assessments and parent interviews. The analyses of the data found that most parents did watch the videos and the intervention did support parental self-efficacy in mathematics. However, there was no strong correlation between the use of the videos and student achievement. The pre- and post-assessments of the control and experimental phases were not significantly different. Therefore, more research is needed on web-based parental remediation using teacher-made instructional videos and its relationship with student achievement.
