NEW YORK, NY – (Sept. 15, 2014) – Lee County Middle School in Beattyville, Kent. improved student math proficiency after implementing Common Core Coach from Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 texts and interactive digital tools. Lee County Middle School used the program to help students master Common Core math skills.

“With Common Core Coach, we were able to prepare our teachers and students for the rigors of Common Core assessments,” said Karen Angel, principal at Lee County Middle School. “The results speak for themselves, with noticeable gains in student achievement from year to year.”

Lee County Middle School math teachers wanted toincrease math proficiency scores on the end-of-grade Kentucky Performance Rating for Education Progress (K-PREP). The percentage of students performing at Novice level, Kentucky’s lowest achievement level, was approximately 30 percent in grades six and eight, and 45 percent for grade seven. Faced with the more rigorous standards of the Common Core, teachers also felt the need to provide students additional practice with higher-level math questions. After using Common Core Coach Mathematics, Lee County Middle School sixth, seventh and eighth grade students experienced a significant increase in math achievement. Between 2011-2012 and 2012-2013, the percentage of students performing at Novice level dropped by 13 percent in sixth grade, 25 percent in seventh and 16 percent in eighth. In the seventh and eighth grade, there was also a significant increase in the top two achievement levels, going from 18 percent to 44 percent and 26 percent to 43 percent respectively.

“Triumph Learning is committed to providing schools with the tools and resources they need to succeed under the Common Core State Standards,” said Mike Morley, publisher for Triumph Learning. “The improvements these schools have experienced using Common Core Coach speaks to the effectiveness of the program.”

Teachers guide students to master skills with structured lessons.
