Wowzers Students Improve Test ScoresResults from Two Independent Evaluations Released Today
Today, we're releasing two independent evaluations. Both were completed by university researchers. One of the programs was a blended learning program during the school day. The other program was a tiered intervention program.
Blended Learning Program
The first evaluation was completed by the University of Memphis. In the quasi-experimental study design, two classrooms of 4th grade students used Wowzers in a Rotational Blended Learning environment, while another two classrooms used textbooks.
Students in the Wowzers program outperformed their peers that used textbooks on their state standardized test. Click here for more information.
Tiered Intervention Program
The second evaluation was completed by researchers from the University of Wisconsin, the University of Texas, and the University of Southern California. The evaluation looked at numerous after-school intervention programs and compared the the efficacy of them by examining students' standardized test scores.
Students that participated in programs that used Wowzers had a "greater than average" improvement in their test scores. Click here for more information.
