The Evergreen Education Group, in cooperation with FuelEd, has published an executive summary and nine full case studies titled, “Outcomes of Blended and Online Learning Programs in Schools Using Fuel Education Curriculum.” The purpose of the report is to further the understanding and potential benefits of blended and online learning programs among schools demonstrating strong academic results, and to highlight the commonalities in instructional models, practices, measurements of success, and outcomes.

Teachers, administrators, and students attributed the success of their programs to several factors:
- Better relationships with students—When teachers had a better understanding of both a student’s academic capability and his or her personal and family situations, they were better able to tailor their teaching and counseling activities to fit that student’s individual needs.
- Online curriculum as primary source of instruction—Many students felt they received more personal attention from teachers in these programs than in traditional schools.
- In-person and virtual instructional support—Most students interacted with their teachers frequently each day, whether the interaction was in-person or virtual.
