This data is gathered from state standardized math tests of 70,655 students across the nation for new, fully implemented grades.

  • (n) = number of schools

Since 2008 MIND has conducted comparative analyses for geographical cohorts of 5 or more elementary schools as they use ST Math for their first one-to-three years. The cohorts typically number 1,000 students or more. The schools are generally from the lower 30% of statewide math performance, and are matched to comparison schools similar in location, math performance, and demographics. The growth in grade-average math proficiency for grades using ST Math is compared to grade-average math proficiency growth at comparison schools not using ST Math.
