Improving Online Assessment Scores with EasyTech

Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) has been a Learning.com customer for 12 years. In the 2015-16 school year, at the request of Mary Knight, Director of Technology, Learning.com partnered with FUSD to validate the correlation of students’ digital literacy skills with Arizona’s Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching (AZMerit).


Does consistent use of EasyTech enhance student performance on Arizona’s online standardized test, AZMerit?


A sample of third- and fifth-grade students in the Flagstaff Unified School District


Students were categorized as either frequent or infrequent users of EasyTech based on the number of curriculum items launched in the 2015-2016 school year. The categories included: 0-4 items launched, 5-9 items launched, 10-14 items launched, 15-20 items launched, more than 20 items launched. Student performance was then compared based on this attribute.


Students who were consistent users of EasyTech performed 4.3 times higher than their non-consistent counterparts.
