Imagine Learning’s 
Impact 

  • In June 2023, a study revealed Idaho students using Imagine Math showed academic growth and higher scores on a state assessment. The study showed a positive relationship for all grades between Imagine Math lessons passed and standardized test score growth with a statistically significant relationship for grades 4 through 7. The study also observed positive and significant relationships between Imagine Math Lessons passed and ISAT math score growth for various student subgroups, including special education students, English learners, students who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch and Hispanic/Latino or American Indian/Alaskan Native students. 

  • In 2022, Imagine Learning partnered with a speech recognition company to bolster their existing Language & Literacy program, using a voice technology tool that would allow educators to assess and support student reading and language learning progress more accurately and efficiently. 

 

  • Market tailwinds supported by a shift to online learning helped alleviate issues that had been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic – such as teacher shortages and COVID-induced learning gaps – that had disproportionately affected low income and minority populations  

  • Imagine Learning’s scalable platform with a large customer base was well suited to expand into additional school districts, helping more students without additional capex
