New research provides one of the first direct comparisons of remediation and learning acceleration, analyzing progress in math across 6,000 elementary classrooms over the 2020-21 school year.
Students who experienced learning acceleration struggled less and learned more, completing 27% more grade-level lessons than students who started at the same level but experienced remediation instead.
Learning acceleration was particularly effective for students of color and those from low-income families, completing 49% more grade-level lessons than those who experienced remediation.
Students from high-poverty schools were nearly 2x as likely to be remediated than their peers in low-poverty schools —even when they had already demonstrated success on grade-level content.
A "just-in-time” approach that connects unfinished learning into the context of new, grade-level learning.
In learning acceleration, a third grade teacher starts with third-grade content, and builds in key second-grade concepts when students need them to access grade-level learning. Check out our on-demand webinar to see learning acceleration in practice.
