Two New Studies Reveal Significant Gains in Student Performance with Imagine Math

Students Using Imagine Math Show Higher Scores and Proficiency Levels

Scottsdale, Ariz., JULY 12, 2022 – Imagine Learning, the largest provider of digital curriculum solutions in the U.S., serving 15 million students in more than half the school districts nationwide, today announced the results of two new studies revealing that elementary and middle school students who used Imagine Math demonstrated significant academic gains on standardized assessments. The studies took place in schools across Texas, Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina during the 2020-21 school year.

“As we continue to collaborate with districts, the results of these studies reveal what the future of learning can look like when the power of digital learning is harnessed to support educators,” said Jeff Pendleton, SVP and General Manager of Supplemental and Intervention for Imagine Learning. “Students are making great strides through the use of our adaptive, personalized learning solutions and we’re delighted to see Imagine Math accelerating learning and igniting breakthroughs.”

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE STUDIES:

  • During the 2020-21 academic year, a public school district in Texas implemented Imagine Math with students in Grades 1-9. Imagine Learning obtained and analyzed Renaissance Star Math® test scores from more than 16,000 Imagine Math students and from a comparison group of students who were matched on their Fall 2020 Renaissance Star Math scaled score, race/ethnicity, and gender. Findings from the study show that after one year using Imagine Math, students demonstrated significantly greater gains on the Renaissance Star Math assessment than their nonparticipating peers. Additionally, the percentage of Imagine Math students reaching Proficient on the Renaissance Star Math assessment was greater than that of the matched non-user group.
  • During the 2020-21 academic year, a national network of charter schools implemented Imagine Math with 3,048 students in Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Imagine Learning analyzed Fall 2020 to Spring 2021 NWEA MAP Growth Math data among those Imagine Math students compared to a statistically matched group of 3,068 program non-users who were demographically and academically similar. Overall, findings from the study showed that the students who used Imagine Math demonstrated a significantly greater growth rate from Fall 2020 to Spring 2021 than non-users.
