A new study released today from WestEd, a nonpartisan, nonprofit research agency, commissioned by Front Row Education, Inc, found that students using the adaptive, gamified and data-drive technology showed greater mathematics achievement outcomes when compared with students who did not.The study encompassed over 450 kindergarten, first and second grade students in a rural school, and is based on student scores on the Northwest Evaluation Association's’ (NWEA) Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) in mathematics. 

The study compared classrooms in which teachers opted to use the Front Row technology, and those that did not over the course of the 2014-2015 school year. Taking into consideration test scores at the start of the year and again at the end, the analysis found that students given access to Front Row scored on average nearly 10 (9.86) percentage points higher, and approximately two months ahead in terms of mathematical achievements.
