Goalbook Pathways in Lima City Schools
An Evidence-Based Impact Study by Evidentally

Published by Evidentally on August 2019

An independent research study conducted by Evidentally, a research organization dedicated to providing K-12 educators with evidence of "what works," found that educator usage of Goalbook Pathways is positively linked to increased student literacy scores in a districtwide study in Lima City Schools, Ohio.

The principal finding is that an increase in student literacy, as measured by the Scholastic Reading Inventory, is correlated with teachers using Goalbook Pathways to unpack academic standards. The positive effect on literacy was strongest for certain subgroups, such as for eighth grade students and black students.

"This research confirms that Goalbook is having a meaningful impact on empowering our teachers to support the success of all of our students. We see that our collective efforts to facilitate our Teacher-based Teams and instructional planning really can make a difference in improving outcomes for specific student populations."

Jill Ackerman, Superintendent
