Vmath is strongly rooted in research and has been independently validated in school districts around the country. A study from a Three-Year Cohort (2009-2012) with students in grades 2-8 in 262 school districts from 42 schools shows that students enrolled in Vmath increased their overall proficiency as measured by the Progress Assessments. The Progress Assessments indicate students’ optimal learning range and monitor progress toward grade-level goals. The Progress Assessments yield a Quantile score based on the Quantile Framework® for Mathematics.
