    Not sure. Have you any more context?

    2. The research was conducted over a one-month period during the third nine weeks
    The period of the research was one month. It took place during the third of the nine-week periods/terms into which (presumably) the academic year is divided.

    3. during their exploratory period
    It could be the period of time during which they were exploring ways in which to carry out the research; it could also be that part of the research period during which they were finding out the basic information on which they were going to work. The context will probably tell you.

    4. NovaNet is a math tutorial program aligned with both national and state standards.
    Presumably both national and state authorities lay down desirable standards for tutorial programs. The NovaNet program meets these standards.

    The principal of the school is very focused on academics. A bit ambiguous.

    'academics' = a noun, people who are academically qualified or the technical details or aspects of education.
