Survey Shows Test Scores Rise for Stride Academy Customers

Share Article

Seventy-three percent of school administrators utilizing the Stride Academy™ program (formerly Kid's College) over a 4-year span have observed increased standardized test scores for their schools. The data confirms program effectiveness in assisting schools with making Adequate Yearly Progress, and improving scores year-by-year.

A recent customer survey conducted by LTS Education Systems reports that 73 percent of administrators utilizing the Stride Academy™ program (formerly Kid’s College) over a 4-year span have observed increased standardized test scores for their schools.

The survey data shows that Stride Academy is adept in assisting today’s administrators and teachers with annually meeting high expectations for end-of-year learning goals, on track for a much broader objective of ensuring all students are college and career ready when they graduate from high school.

Every school year, students must achieve at or above specific proficiency standards, and they must continue to grow each year in order to stay on or above grade level -- a tall order for educators when considering limited instructional time and the diversity of individual learners. Rising to the challenge, the Stride Academy program provides educators with an agile supplemental resource for pre-Kindergarten through high school to support increased achievement and accelerated growth for every student, especially struggling learners.

Driven by patented STRIDE™ Adaptive Technology, Stride Academy personalized learning paths for students begin in early education and are designed to support student success throughout their academic career. Students can grow within the Stride Academy program year by year, and LTS customers reap the benefits of continued implementation, as evidenced by improvement in test scores from year to year.

Stride Academy’s effectiveness in raising test scores is rooted in expertly designed online applications for continuous assessment and progress monitoring, individualized intervention, guided practice and direct instruction. The expansive Stride Academy curriculum library of practice items, passages, video lessons and study guides are directly aligned to critical learning standards, including the Common Core State Standards and individual state standards such as the Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills and Alabama College- and Career-Ready Standards.

Stride Academy is a valuable component for blended learning and extended learning (out of school) programs, providing interactive, game-motivated learning activities that engage every student and create excitement in a classroom or learning environment.
