New Study Shows That Students Using MobyMax Math Make 53% More Progress

A large-scale research study of 4,000 students in 230 U.S. classrooms has shown that using MobyMax Math for less than 20 minutes per day enables students to advance as much as one full school year.

The study, conducted in the first quarter of 2018 by an independent panel of data science experts, determined that students using MobyMax Math experienced a 53% improvement over students in the control group who did not use MobyMax.

The study results offer particular hope for students who are below grade level and need to catch up quickly and effectively. Teachers who need differentiated solutions to help struggling students can also reliably turn to MobyMax Math for personalized tools like built-in IEP reporting and continuous progress monitoring to find and fix learning gaps.

“We’re thrilled. This study confirms that MobyMax Math excels at helping students conquer mathematics and fact fluency while instilling a deep, intuitive sense for numbers,” said MobyMax co-founder Glynn Willett. “We’re saving students and teachers a tremendous amount of time by pinpointing individual students’ needs so they can progress immediately as mastery is achieved.”

The study used a randomized control experiment design, the gold standard of education research methodologies, that qualifies as “Tier 1 – Strong Evidence” under the ESSA guidelines for evidence-based interventions. In addition, the study met the evidence standards of the IES and WWC.

The Math study showed that MobyMax Math improves student outcomes with an effect size of .702. This is equivalent to roughly one school year of additional growth. Given the size and design of the study, the results of the analysis show that MobyMax Math is an effective intervention that reliably produces significant positive outcomes for K-8 students.
