Edgenuity, a leading provider of online curriculum and instructional services for the K-12 market, today announced new courses designed to address the learning loss and gaps in knowledge expected to occur as a result of COVID-related school closures.
While student regression during summer months is not uncommon under normal circumstances, the effects of the COVID crisis on student learning gains are expected to be even more pronounced. A recent NWEA study indicates that students may return to school in fall 2020 with only roughly 70 percent of the learning gains in reading and less than 50 percent of the learning gains in mathematics compared to a typical school year. In mathematics especially, students in some grades are expected to return to school “nearly a full year behind what we would observe in normal conditions.”
To address this disruption – and to promote readiness for the upcoming school year – Edgenuity has developed these new solutions to support students in mastering critical concepts and skills from the last school year while preparing for future courses.
These solutions have also been designed to aid educators interested in offering remediation or review of course standards-based content in a quick and efficient format.
“School closures related to the COVID crisis have not only impacted student learning in the short term. The learning disruptions caused by the pandemic have the potential to set students back in grade level mastery, skill development and the simple habit of learning,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “With quick and intensive intervention using these new options to address learning loss, teachers have the opportunity to help students get back on track and, in time, meet and exceed their educational goals.”
All of Edgenuity’s Learning Loss solutions are customizable and can be used individually or in combination. Districts interested in learning more about Edgenuity’s Continuing of Learning solutions can visit this page.
