Research-based Impact

Harvard Growth Chart

The Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR) at Harvard University has completed a study of nearly 3,000 math students using DreamBox in Grades 3-5 in two districts. The study showed meaningful achievement gains. In particular, for every 20 minutes a student spent on DreamBox their MAP score increased by 2.5 points. Because the study indicates a linear relationship between time spent on DreamBox and achievement gains, students who use DreamBox for the recommended 60 minutes per week stand to experience an increase of 7.5 points on the MAP. These findings are similar to the 2010 SRI study of DreamBox in grades K-1, which found that students improved 5.5 percentile points after 21 hours of DreamBox usage.

North Dakota Schools Boost Math Scores with DreamBox
Bismarck, N.D.
Bismarck Public Schools (BPS) is a notably high-achieving district, catering to a wide range of students from different socioeconomic backgrounds. The district adopted Dreambox to help it unify the way math instruction is delivered to students of varying needs. After a successful pilot at four schools — two middle schools and two high schools — BPS expanded Dreambox to all grade levels throughout the district. As a result of seeing measurable improvements in student math scores, BPS made the decision to embed Dreambox more deeply into its math curriculum.
