Texas Education Agency Report Finds Students Using Think Through Math Significantly Improved Their STAAR Performance

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — In a comprehensive study by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) evaluating computerized interactive programs that are part of the state’s Students Using Curriculum to Ensure Sustained Success (SUCCESS) program, Think Through Math (TTM), a web-based math instructional system for grades 3 through Algebra 1, has been found to significantly improve STAAR performance outcomes for students.

Most notably, according to the evaluation, “advanced statistical modeling, accounting for other observable factors that may influence student outcomes—such as students’ prior STAAR-Mathematics performance—showed that students in Grades 3-8 who attempted 20 or more Think Through Math lessons had statistically significant higher STAAR-Mathematics scores than non-users.” On average, TTM users realized an average improvement of nearly 17 percentage points, with 3rd grade improvement highest at 26 percentage points. TTM users who attempted 20 or more lessons achieved an average 90% pass rate on the STAAR-Mathematics exam versus only a 74% pass rate for non-TTM users. “Read more”
