Student Outcomes

Best-in-Class Evaluation

We use rigorous evaluation to gauge how students in LE schools are doing relative to similar students in other schools. That allows educators to track success from a longer vantage point.

During the school year, our learning model encourages teachers to regularly use other timely evidence including quizzes, student work, and exit tickets to make adjustments in real time.

Early Indicators

Louisiana and michigan

Rigorous analysis of student achievement in Louisiana and Michigan during the 2017-2018 school year indicates significant, positive effects from curriculum-based professional learning.

Compared to other causal studies of education interventions that use standardized achievement outcomes, our results in math in Louisiana fall in the largest range. The effects in Michigan for both ELA and math fall within the middle range after only one-year of support.

Using a rigorous methodology, we measured the impact of our programs in Louisiana and Michigan during the 2017-2018 school year on student learning. Students at LE schools learned more than the comparison group despite starting further behind, in at least 3 out of the 4 effects we calculated. If assigned to an LE school in Louisiana, the average student in the comparison group would have gained 12 percentile points in math.
