How Prodigy helped more
Texas students succeed
The challenge
Like educators in schools across the United States, math teachers
in the Texas school system are under pressure to help students
achieve positive scores on statewide assessments. While every school
wants to accelerate student math proficiency, administrators at
five Texas school districts faced unique obstacles. And although
each school had a different story, those administrators shared many
key questions when considering tools to reinforce their math
curricula. What solution could legitimately:
•	 Boost learning outcomes for students of all economic
backgrounds from 1st
to 8th
Grade?
•	 Succeed on a limited budget, with financial constraints
restricting most options?
•	 Engage students, with disengagement being the number one
complaint from teachers?
•	 Meet the needs of a diverse student population with a wide
range of proficiency levels?
The solution
The districts’ students now use Prodigy — a free, adaptive math
game loved by millions of students around the world. Fully
aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)
curriculum, teachers assign in-game content to help students build
prerequisite skills and address problem areas. Because it runs
quickly and easily on all internet browsers and devices, teachers
are able to get started in less than five minutes.
Prodigy Game and five Texas
school districts increased pass
rates, lowered fail rates, and
accelerated math proficiency.
Improving results together!
How it works
To boost math results, teachers use Prodigy to:
•	 Pinpoint students’ problem areas and use adaptive learning to
customize content and reinforce instruction
•	 Engage entire classrooms and incorporate the math curriculum
within a fun video game environment that appeals to students
•	 Adjust questions to support in-class lessons and to review
material on a student-by-student basis
•	 Obtain live data and reports on questions answered, play time
in and out of class, and in-game plans and assignments
Across the five Texas school districts in question,1
we observed test
results in 171 schools — comparing those that used Prodigy with
those that did not.2
The results
•	 Schools enrolled in Prodigy both performed better and
enjoyed greater improvements on STAAR test results than
inactive schools.
•	 Schools enrolled in Prodigy saw an average increase
of 12.39 points on scores in the STAAR exams — double
the improvement seen in schools where no students
used the game.
•	 In schools enrolled in Prodigy, the percentage of students who
reached the Approaches benchmark was roughly 75% greater
than the improvement seen in inactive schools.
•	 In schools enrolled in Prodigy, the percentage of students who
reached the Masters benchmark was roughly 40% greater than
the improvement seen in inactive school.
Prodigy helped engage kids and
increase scores because it gave
them confidence.
Brenda Lynch
Math Instructional Specialist, New Caney ISD
Our kids are so engaged with
Prodigy. They love it. They
really want to participate and
really want to learn more. To
me, as a math coordinator,
that speaks volumes.

1.	 The school districts analyzed are: Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, Beaumont ISD, Tomball ISD, Grand Prairie ISD
and Midland ISD.
2.	 To compare changes in these 171 schools’ test scores, we contrasted the results of the 51 schools that did
not use Prodigy with those of the 119 schools where at least 20% of the student population used Prodigy.
Join 800,000 teachers and
30 million students who love the
most engaging math platform
in the world.
Bring Prodigy to your district!
An average improvement of 12.39 points
on scores in the STAAR exams — double
the improvement seen in schools that
did not use Prodigy.
Note: This case study shares some observations where playing Prodigy seemed to
correlate with students’ math performance. While not a randomized trial, these
observations may suggest some patterns of interest.
A 2.67% improvement in the
percentage of students who reached
the Approaches benchmark — about
75% better than the 1.21% seen in
inactive schools.
A 4.11% improvement in the percentage
of students who reached the Masters
benchmark — about 40% better than
the 2.76% seen in inactive schools.

How Prodigy Helped More Texas Students Succeed

  • 1. How Prodigy helped more Texas students succeed May 10 2018 www.prodigygame.com
  • 2. How Prodigy helped more Texas students succeed The challenge Like educators in schools across the United States, math teachers in the Texas school system are under pressure to help students achieve positive scores on statewide assessments. While every school wants to accelerate student math proficiency, administrators at five Texas school districts faced unique obstacles. And although each school had a different story, those administrators shared many key questions when considering tools to reinforce their math curricula. What solution could legitimately: • Boost learning outcomes for students of all economic backgrounds from 1st to 8th Grade? • Succeed on a limited budget, with financial constraints restricting most options? • Engage students, with disengagement being the number one complaint from teachers? • Meet the needs of a diverse student population with a wide range of proficiency levels? The solution The districts’ students now use Prodigy — a free, adaptive math game loved by millions of students around the world. Fully aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum, teachers assign in-game content to help students build prerequisite skills and address problem areas. Because it runs quickly and easily on all internet browsers and devices, teachers are able to get started in less than five minutes. Prodigy Game and five Texas school districts increased pass rates, lowered fail rates, and accelerated math proficiency. Improving results together!
  • 3. How it works To boost math results, teachers use Prodigy to: • Pinpoint students’ problem areas and use adaptive learning to customize content and reinforce instruction • Engage entire classrooms and incorporate the math curriculum within a fun video game environment that appeals to students • Adjust questions to support in-class lessons and to review material on a student-by-student basis • Obtain live data and reports on questions answered, play time in and out of class, and in-game plans and assignments Across the five Texas school districts in question,1 we observed test results in 171 schools — comparing those that used Prodigy with those that did not.2 The results • Schools enrolled in Prodigy both performed better and enjoyed greater improvements on STAAR test results than inactive schools. • Schools enrolled in Prodigy saw an average increase of 12.39 points on scores in the STAAR exams — double the improvement seen in schools where no students used the game. • In schools enrolled in Prodigy, the percentage of students who reached the Approaches benchmark was roughly 75% greater than the improvement seen in inactive schools. • In schools enrolled in Prodigy, the percentage of students who reached the Masters benchmark was roughly 40% greater than the improvement seen in inactive school. Prodigy helped engage kids and increase scores because it gave them confidence. Brenda Lynch Math Instructional Specialist, New Caney ISD Our kids are so engaged with Prodigy. They love it. They really want to participate and really want to learn more. To me, as a math coordinator, that speaks volumes. Kristi Richter Math Coordinator, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD “ “

The school districts analyzed are: Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, Beaumont ISD, Tomball ISD, Grand Prairie ISD and Midland ISD. 2. To compare changes in these 171 schools’ test scores, we contrasted the results of the 51 schools that did not use Prodigy with those of the 119 schools where at least 20% of the student population used Prodigy. Join 800,000 teachers and 30 million students who love the most engaging math platform in the world. Bring Prodigy to your district! An average improvement of 12.39 points on scores in the STAAR exams — double the improvement seen in schools that did not use Prodigy. Note: This case study shares some observations where playing Prodigy seemed to correlate with students’ math performance. While not a randomized trial, these observations may suggest some patterns of interest. A 2.67% improvement in the percentage of students who reached the Approaches benchmark — about 75% better than the 1.21% seen in inactive schools. A 4.11% improvement in the percentage of students who reached the Masters benchmark — about 40% better than the 2.76% seen in inactive schools. 15 10 5 0 Average change in STAAR scores (2016 vs 2017) Using ProdigyWithout Prodigy 12.39 6.19 3 2 1 0 Average change in % of students reaching “Approaches” (2016 vs 2017) Using Prodigy 2.67 1.21 Without Prodigy
