Key findings of Project RED Phase III, a deep study of 37,000 students and 2,200 teachers in 20 high-performing “Project RED Signature Districts,” include:

* Properly implemented, technology can make a huge difference.
* Academic growth in study schools outpaced that of their state counterparts.
* 79% of reporting districts saw increased graduation rates.
* 84% of the districts reported reductions in disciplinary actions.
* Implementation fidelity continues to be an issue even in high-performing districts.
* Ongoing use of formative assessment data can drive academic improvement.
* Matching appropriate pedagogy to learning goals is necessary to maximize outcomes.
* Hard data indicates that technology can be revenue-positive at the state level.
