According to a recent study, English learner (ELs) students from a school district in Oklahoma who used Imagine Language & Literacy during the 2017–2018 school year showed overall greater growth on NWEA MAP assessments than students who did not use the program.
The study measured ELs from Kindergarten through grade seven who attended a diversely populated school district where 22% of the students are ELs. By comparing beginning- and end-of-year NWEA MAP Reading scores of 112 students, the study found that students who used Imagine Language & Literacy with fidelity enjoyed greater RIT score growth in terms of median and distribution compared to those who did not use the program.
These findings suggest that similar students who use Imagine Language & Literacy would expect to also show more favorable growth than non-users on reading assessment scores.
