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.
