Learning Loss Prevention
Stride K12-Powered Students Beat the "COVID Slide"
It was learning as usual for students at Stride K12-powered schools this past year, despite the global pandemic. Far from following the national trend of learning loss in math and reading, students of Stride K12-powered schools kept right on learning—even making gains in crucial academic areas, according to a recent survey.
Stride K12-powered students see more gains than national averages—as many as 27 percentage points in math and 12 percentage points in reading in NWEA standardized testing.
Stride students outpace national averages in all grades for both math and reading.
“The study’s findings highlight an important fact: experienced online learning providers offer the teachers, resources, and specialized support students need to succeed.”
—Jeanna Pignatiello, Stride’s Senior Vice President and Chief Academic Officer

About the Survey
Northwest Evaluation Association's (NWEA's) Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) Growth is an innovative assessment used to measure achievement and growth in K–12 math, reading, language usage, and science. NWEA researchers used MAP Growth assessment results of nearly 4.5 million U.S. students in grades 3–7 when the pandemic began (and who are now in grades 4–8) to observe the performance differences between Winter 2019 to Fall 2019 (subsequently referred to as "during the COVID-19 pandemic") to understand the impact of the pandemic on learning progress.
NWEA is a research-based, not-for-profit organization with 40 years of experience developing Pre-K–12 assessments trusted by educators in more than 9,500 schools, districts, and education agencies in 145 countries.
