The Impact of Pixie on Student Achievement

During the 2010-2011 school year, research firm SEG Measurement, conducted an independent, peer-reviewed study of approximately 1,000 students across five states on the effectiveness of Pixie in Reading Comprehension and Mathematics learning. Using pre and post tests of treatment and control groups, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students in classrooms using Pixie demonstrated substantial growth compared to students in classes where Pixie was not used. Students participating in the treatment group achieved a half-years more growth than students in the control group.
