Research Results are now available.

The results of the NCLB mandated evaluation of reading and math software is now available (see press release).

  • On average, after one year, products did not increase or decrease test scores by amounts that were statistically different from zero.
  • For reading products, effects on overall test scores were correlated with the student-teacher ratio in first-grade classrooms and with the amount of time that products were used in fourth-grade classrooms.
  • For math products, effects were uncorrelated with classroom and school characteristics.

The pdf of the full report is available for download.

A report based on a second year of data collection will be released at a later date.
