Bridges Charter School Students Show Remarkable Gains in Let’s Go Learn Pilot

45 3rd grade students at Bridges Charter School in Thousand Oaks, recently piloted Let’s Go Learn’s online reading and math diagnostic assessments, reporting, and courses. Students completed pre-assessments and then worked online at school and home on LGL Edge reading and math courses. Teachers then had them complete post-assessments. 

In math, the time between the 2 assessments was roughly 2 months. The expected gains would be 0.2 years. Students using LGL Math Edge made overall gains in math at the 0.7 years level in only 2 months time. 

In reading, the time between the 2 assessments was roughly 1.5 months, and therefore the expected gains would be 0.15 years. Showing gains in reading in a short period of time is more difficult than in math because the margin of error is greater when measuring reading sub-tests as compared to mathematics. However, students who used LGL Reading Edge courses regularly gained 2 years in word recognition and 1 year in vocabulary.

Teachers who piloted the program described the top four features of the Let's Go Learn's reading and math solutions -- 1) support personalized learning; 2) help improve student learning and skill-building; 3) provide online support for monitoring and tracking student progress; and 4) support parent communication with reporting.

Richard Capone upon learning the pilot results expressed his delight: "We are proud to partner with Bridges Charter School and support their vision of discovery and academic excellence!"
