We’re proud of our recent gains, but the real value is in our long-term results. Third-party studies confirm that ANet’s tools and services are having a positive impact on teachers, leaders, and school structures year after year.
Over the last two years, schools that partnered with ANet achieved, on average, 10 percentage point gains in student proficiency in ELA and math. On average, these schools improved in both ELA and math at more than twice the rate of comparable schools in their home state. These results have proven to be repeatable across charter, district, low-, middle-, and high-performing schools.
We’re proud of our recent gains, but the real value of our program is in our long-term results. Our partners continue to show improvement year after year. Our 2005 founding corps of seven low-income Boston schools has virtually closed the achievement gap with non-low-income schools in Massachusetts! Six of those schools continue to work with ANet to expand on their exceptional results.
We believe that setting the conditions for student success begins with the practice of teachers and school leaders. Armed with the ability to use data well, teachers and school leaders can set consistently high expectations for students, individualize learning for both adults and students, and better manage performance.
Third-party studies confirm that ANet’s tools and services are having a positive impact on teachers, leaders, and school structures. ANet has partnered with Harvard University’s Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR) to conduct an i3-funded randomized control trial of our work with schools. Early results show our schools are putting in place practices that enable them to use data and plan from standards. Over the course of the 2012-13 school year, 96% of our schools made progress toward their long-term practice goals.
