In December the Heffernans Presented at the White House.
An objective independent research organization, SRI International, published a peer-review
journal article reporting that ASSISTments caused students to learn 75% more on a standardized
test of math achievement, compared to what they would have learned in a typical school year.
ASSISTments also helped close persistent achievement gaps. We are proud to get this amazing
validation and want to thank the 80+ teachers that agreed to be randomly assigned to control or
treatment. Due to this validation, Neil and Cristina were invited to present about the study
results at the White House.
