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.
