DreamBox Learning today announced results of a research study from the Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR) at Harvard University, which suggests that the adaptive learning program is associated with improvement in mathematics achievement for students in grades 3-5. Results of the study indicated that the average student in a classroom using DreamBox improved nearly 4 percentile points on NWEA MAP assessments after 14 hours of DreamBox usage.

The study examined the individual test scores of nearly 3,000 students in grades 3-5 during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years in two districts, Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) in Maryland and Rocketship Education in California. 

Student achievement was measured using scores on the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) mathematics assessments, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) mathematics assessments, and state assessments for Maryland and California.
