    33. 33. Rocky Mount Fast Facts • Public K–12 charter school in Rocky Mount, North Carolina • Independent North Carolina public charter school • 965 total students • College prep curriculum • Title I school • 5 percent English Language Learners • 65 percent minority students
    34. 34. Pain Points • (Need general BL pain point) • Years of student math under performance • Need to transition to upcoming Common Core State Standards that would only highlight students’ background learning gaps “Just to illustrate the lack of background knowledge some of our kids have, some of our kindergarten students don’t know their colors or the alphabet.” Angela Langley, Dean of Math
    35. 35. Blended Learning Solution • NEW Learning Lab • Add more content around non-DBL Blended Learning Solutions Rocky Mount decided to implement…if any??
    36. 36. Why DreamBox Learning? • Blended learning approach that would leverage both the Singapore Method and a supplemental online learning solution. • To identify those gaps, and reinforce the basics while providing the rigor required by the Common Core “We were impressed by DreamBox Learning’s excellent track record of supporting blended learning and Singapore Math and by its proven ability to identify and isolate gaps, remedy them, and enable learners to advance alongside their peers.” Angela Langley, Dean of Math
    37. 37. DreamBox Implementation • Deployed since September 2012 • Daily rotation for every K–5 students • 90 minutes per day, every day • Singapore Math learning model
    38. 38. Results with DreamBox Learning This is 3rd grade data for Fall testing. We consider mastery working above average, target as average, and frustrated as below average as defined by iSTEEP Norms for Math Computer Assessment BOY (Beginning of Year). This is 3rd grade data for Winter testing. We consider mastery working above average, target as average, and frustrated as below average as defined by iSTEEP Norms for Math Computer Assessment MOY (Middle of Year).
    39. 39. Results without DreamBox Learning Again, DreamBox was only used in K-5. We did introduce DreamBox to 6th grade students after students returned from Winter Break in January 2013. Since their introduction to DreamBox we have not conducted benchmark testing. Note the increase in "Math Frustrated". 6th Grade Winter Results 6th Grade Fall Results
