Excel Math Helps Students Raise Test Scores

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium today announced cut scores for its spring test, and released data projecting that more than half of students will not meet grade-level-proficiency marks in mathematics on its test this spring.

Prediction: Half of math students will not meet grade-level proficiency marks on Common Core Assessments this spring.

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is a group that is designing assessments for the Common Core State Standards. 

Since many students are not doing well on Common Core pretests, it is easy to see why parents and teachers may be getting nervous about how well their students will do on these assessments.

Even so, Excel Math lessons continue to build student confidence and success in math— including success on these new assessments. As a result, Excel Math students are testing off the charts in mathematics. 

Here's what one mom wrote to tell us:

"My children have been using Excel Math Standard Edition at home for the last year to supplement the math curriculum they have at school (which isn't very effective).

This year they took the Common Core Math pretest for the first time. We had been warned that our children would probably not score very well on these tests.

However, my fourth grader scored 83% and my third grader (who is not a math genius) scored 98%!

When people asked me if he was a math whiz, I had to tell them, "Not at all. It was the Excel Math Lesson Sheets!"

— Wendy Ullrich, San Diego, California parent

And another mom called to say:

"We have used your Excel Math lessons before with our older daughter.

They helped her learn so much and score really well on the IOWA tests.

We didn’t use Excel Math last year and her scores dropped a lot! From a 99 to an 81.

Clearly, we are going to order again for this year and use Excel Math!"

Parents across the country are discovering that Excel Math lessons help students retain concepts into long-term memory so they can recall those concepts when assessed.

Other math lessons can't even compare.

As a result, Excel Math students are scoring well on Iowa Basic Skills Tests, Texas STAAR tests and even Common Core pretests!
