ELA scores up 18 percentage points

Average assessment scores increased by 18 percentage points after using Total Motivation ELA.

This is the intended rigor for the standard, and we can’t back off just because it’s hard. Our kids can do this.

During the first year of implementation, 2013–14, two things became clear: Total Motivation Math is very rigorous, and it works.

As a principal, I’m always looking at the data and letting that drive our decisions. The first year of implementation, our overall math scores went up from 60% to 87%. Total Motivation is really proving out for us.
