Case Studies

Long-term partners demonstrate proven results in a variety of settings with Reasoning Mind.

IN ANGLETON ISD, MORE
8TH GRADERS TAKE ALGEBRA

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.

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.

LOW-INCOME DALLAS SCHOOL
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.

COMPTON STUDENTS FIND
SUCCESS AFTER SCHOOL
3rd-Grade Cohort Math CST Scale Scores

MEET MAX AND CRYSTAL,
REASONING MIND SUPERSTARS
“Max” is an at-risk English Language Learner who entered 2nd grade behind his peers. Working evenings and weekends, Max spent 168 hours using a Reasoning Mind program over the school year. He ended that year at a grade level equivalent of 4.3 on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) — far enough ahead to be in the gifted and talented range.
"Crystal" began 2nd grade at a grade level equivalent of only 1.5. Crystal enjoyed learning math with Reasoning Mind so much that she spent a full 72 hours online, as recommended. In a single school year, Crystal moved from half a grade level behind to more than two levels ahead, ending the year at a grade level equivalent of 4.4 on the ITBS.
