A study out of MIT, recently featured in U.S. News & World Report hailed ASSISTments as one of few educational platforms proven to effectively increase student math learning.

The MIT study conducted a review of 100+ educational technology studies, and concluded that ASSISTments is one of the most promising programs in the US based on an outside evaluation that showed it double student's’ yearly gains on a standardized mathematics assessment.

“ASSISTments improved seventh-graders’ math scores in Maine when students spent only 10 minutes a night on the software, three or four times a week, as homework. Teachers didn’t have to change their existing lesson plans or textbooks to incorporate it."

These findings have led the U.S. Department of Education to fund further testing of ASSISTments.
