Randomized Controlled Study Shows Substantial Gains for Students Using JUMP Math

Preliminary results from a randomized controlled study led by researchers from Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and the University of Toronto show that the math knowledge of children using JUMP Math grew twice as much as that of children using the usual methods of math instruction in a school district in Ontario.

A team from Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and the University of Toronto conducted a randomized controlled study which followed 272 students randomly selected from 29 classrooms, in 18 schools, in a rural Canadian school board. Teachers (classes) were randomly selected to use either JUMP Math or the incumbent math program, and the teachers in each group received equivalent training in the respective programs. Researchers found that the math knowledge of children using JUMP Math grew twice as much as that of children using the incumbent program. Study results are under peer review and JUMP eagerly awaits publication of the full report.
