As a small district with low turnover, Angleton ISD was an ideal setting for tracking Reasoning Mind students longitudinally. This graph compares the percentage of Reasoning Mind students who went on to take Algebra I in 8th grade to that of their non-Reasoning Mind peers.
Long-term partners demonstrate proven results in a variety of settings with Reasoning Mind.
8TH GRADERS TAKE ALGEBRA
Reasoning Mind students in 5th and 6th grades were more than twice as likely to accelerate into Algebra I in 8th grade as non-Reasoning Mind students.
◉ No Reasoning Mind
- 20% enrolled in algebra in 8th grade
- Majority gifted and talented
◉ 2 Years of Reasoning Mind
- 46% enrolled in algebra in 8th grade
- All general education students
CLOSES THE ACHIEVEMENT GAP
Before the Momentous School (formerly J. Erik Jonsson Community School) in Dallas started using the Reasoning Mind Foundations program, its passing rates on the Texas state assessment were high. But students were not demonstrating true understanding of mathematics, as shown by the low percentage of children achieving a “commended” score.
After the school began using Foundations, its commended scores increased fivefold, bringing Momentous’ performance to a level approaching that of the most affluent school district in Texas.
Momentous School (fmr. J. Erik Jonsson), Dallas
- 82% economically disadvantaged
- 98% minority
Highland Park ISD
- 0% economically disadvantaged
- 3% minority
SUCCESS AFTER SCHOOL
Third-grade students in the Compton Unified School District in California used the Reasoning Mind Foundations program in an after-school setting. CUSD students who logged more than 25 hours with the program significantly outperformed their peers on the California Standards Test.
