Pearson has announced it has combined interactive learning resources from its elementary math program enVisionMATH with the Pearson Perspective program's capabilities in tying assessment to instruction.
Perspective takes the results from students' high-stakes assessments and identifies areas where they are struggling. Then, its Learning Locator connects them with content such as the resources from enVisionMATH that they can use to get back on track.
The effectiveness of enVisionMATH is validated by the student gains reported in an independent, scientific research study, based on the rigorous standards required by the Department of Education's What Works Clearinghouse, the announcement states. This study found that fifth-graders learning with the program jumped the equivalent of five grade levels in math computation achievement in just two years. And the findings from the second year of this two-year randomized control study by Planning, Research and Evaluation Services (PRES) Associates showed that enVisionMATH students overall significantly improved in the areas of math concepts, problem-solving, computation and vocabulary. Pearson recently launched a new edition of the elementary math program, enVisionMATH Common Core, written specifically to the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
enVisionMATH materials for third and fourth grades are now available, and additional grades will be added over the next several months.
