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.

Turning Special Ed on Its Head: Tech Tools Help Struggling Students Succeed

Posted by MobyMax on Apr 10, 2018 4:55:10 PM
by Caitlin Corlett,  7th Grade Special Education Teacher
Lowell School - Whitestone, NY

It takes one to know how to help one.

That is why I became a special education teacher.

Today, I teach 7th grade at The Lowell School in Queens. I know first-hand what struggling students go through, because I used to be just like them. When I was a kid, there were many times that I hated going to school because I couldn’t ‘get’ the lesson or understand what was happening in class. I was failing, but I didn’t know why.

I started my career in general ed. But I remembered teachers who made it fun for me to learn certain things that just weren’t coming easily. I wanted to do that for other students, so I switched to Special Ed.

My first year as a Special Ed teacher in 2010 was almost overwhelming. I had students on all different grade levels and with a variety of learning styles. Figuring out how to help each of them was a real challenge. Some needed to hear things read aloud; that could be a huge distraction for others. Some might be performing three grade levels above; others were several grades below. Yet they were all in the same 7th grade class!

For help, I turned to technology -- specifically, the tools from MobyMax. What a lifesaver!

Our school is a 12:1:1 classroom setting, with two teachers per class. All of our students have different learning disabilities, but MobyMax helps each one feel successful.
