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!"
