New Study Shows That Students Using MobyMax Math Make 53% More Progress

Posted by MobyMax on Sep 26, 2018 10:47:30 AM

Sept 26, 2019 - A large-scale research study of 4,000 students in 230 U.S. classrooms has shown that using MobyMax Math for less than 20 minutes per day enables students to advance as much as one full school year.

The study, conducted in the first quarter of 2018 by an independent panel of data science experts, determined that students using MobyMax Math experienced a 53% improvement over students in the control group who did not use MobyMax.

The study results offer particular hope for students who are below grade level and need to catch up quickly and effectively. Teachers who need differentiated solutions to help struggling students can also reliably turn to MobyMax Math for personalized tools like built-in IEP reporting and continuous progress monitoring to find and fix learning gaps.

“We’re thrilled. This study confirms that MobyMax Math excels at helping students conquer mathematics and fact fluency while instilling a deep, intuitive sense for numbers,” said MobyMax co-founder Glynn Willett. “We’re saving students and teachers a tremendous amount of time by pinpointing individual students’ needs so they can progress immediately as mastery is achieved.”

Study of 4,000 Students Shows a Gain of One Grade Level After 30 Minutes of MobyMax Language Per Week

Posted by MobyMax on Sep 13, 2018 8:45:00 AM

Sept 12, 2018 - A study of more than 4,000 students from 230 randomly selected U.S. classrooms concluded that students who spent just 20 hours using MobyMax increased a full grade level more than students in the same classroom who did not use MobyMax.

“The study results validate the MobyMax method,” said company co-founder Glynn Willett. “Using laser-focused tools like those in MobyMax Suite to ‘find and fix’ individual students’ learning gaps is the most efficient and effective way to help students achieve.”

Three of the findings are particularly relevant to teachers who are strapped for time or whose students are all at different levels.

  • First, the gain in student proficiency came from learning and practice that students were completing on their own, without any additional work required from the teacher.
  • Second, students in a class were able to work on different grade levels based on their individual needs without needing constant teacher oversight.
  • Third, students using MobyMax were able to fix missing skills from prior grade levels without requiring the teacher to provide that instruction. This improved students’ ability to keep up with current instruction in class without the teacher preparing additional lesson plans.
