The results are in for Poway Unified School District’s first research study using our MeasureResults online tool. PUSD was interested in measuring the impact of CompassLearning’s Odyssey Reading program in the middle grades. Using an “interrupted time series” design with a comparison group, they found that both 7th and 8th grade students averaged 1 to 2 points higher than expected on the NWEA MAP Literacy assessment. PUSD plans to continue their evaluation of CompassLearning Odyssey in different subject areas and grade levels. Join us in D.C. at this year’s CoSN conference on March 1, 2010 as Eric Lehew, Executive Director of Learning Support Services at PUSD, presents findings and reflections on the process of using MeasureResults to conduct research at the local district level.
