Students make great reading gains on eight-week pilot of MindPlay Literacy during distance learning
In March 2020, three West Central Florida schools began an eight-week pilot of MindPlay Literacy. During the pilot, which primarily took place during “distance learning” due to school closures, there was an 8% improvement in the number of students who were meeting or exceeding their grade level expectation for independent reading.
Hamilton County School District's 3rd-grade ELA FSA passing rate rises 14% with MindPlay Literacy in one school year
Hamilton County School District implemented MindPlay Literacy in the 2018-2019 school year as part of a countywide implementation for elementary all students and Middle/High lowest quartile. As a result of significant usage among 3rd graders at Hamilton County Elementary School, the 3rd-grade ELA FSA passing rate rose 14 points from the previous school year, surpassing Florida’s statewide 1 point gain.
