Schools around the country are reporting successful implementations of Adaptive Curriculum, with improved test scores, better test readiness, and increased student enthusiasm.
TAKS exit-level exams increased by 16% with the help of AC Science Texas™
"I liked that the program has a lot of built-in formative assessment and that it gives immediate feedback to the student and teacher, alike. Another thing that stood out for me is that [Adaptive Curriculum] has several features to support English language learners (ELLs), which is important for our population here in Houston."
- Timothy J. Johnson, Science Teacher
A cost-effective alternative to deliver labs provided students a new, digital way to learn in and outside of the classroom.
"We chose Adaptive Curriculum because we wanted something innovative that would provide students with hands-on activities, individualization, and real-time feedback and assessment."
- Sonya Simon, Science Department Chair
AC ScienceTexas™ helped increase students' pass rates in Chemistry.
"I like to use AC Science to introduce and reinforce concepts, and to assess student learning. I also give students time to work on the program individually. A key benefit is that it gives students the ability to control the pace of their learning to meet their needs." - Mark Breerwood, Chemistry Teacher and Team Leader
In a 2011-2012 study of 6th and 8th grade underperforming students at Madison Park Middle School, students using Adaptive Curriculum interactive math content experienced a 20% increase over the expected growth targets on the NWEA Assessment.
Students who completed the summer Algebra program and used Adaptive Curriculum achieved pass rates of 15-25% higher than their peers on the Algebra EOC Test.
Hillsborough's summer Algebra program's blended learning model helped students deepen their conceptual understanding, and helped them pass the End-of-Course assessment required for graduation.
An evaluation of Adaptive Curriculum was conducted with a sample of students from several middle schools from a school district in the Southwest. Adaptive Curriculum was associated with an increase in the math achievement of the middle school students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade.
Science scores went up six or seven points a year, and math scores three or four points a year.
"Our science scores have gone up six or seven points a year, and our math scores three or four points a year."
- Alma Cardenas-Rubio, Principal
Eighth-grade science scores improve after five months of implementation
"Students in the eighth grade improved their test scores from 31 to 59 points over the course of the year."
- Darin Bawks, Vice Principal
Engaging students, building teacher confidence, and improving performance
"Teachers in other content areas are envious?they want something like Adaptive Curriculum."
- Estella Cook, Data Support Specialist
Building motivation and improving performance
"The Adaptive Curriculum students are doing better than the control group."
- Chris Brown, Sixth-Grade Science Teacher
Preparing students for the 21st century workplace
"My students enjoy Adaptive Curriculum because it's interactive and interesting. I often hear them say, 'Now I get it!'"
- Peggy Temple, Middle School Math Teacher
