The proof is evident—Khan Academy works. Examine after examine confirms that utilizing Khan Academy results in higher math efficiency and attitudes. Whether or not it’s increased standardized check scores, higher grades, or elevated faculty readiness, the information tells a constant story. Khan Academy’s customized and fascinating platform helps college students worldwide obtain extra in math. On this key put up, we share a collection of high-quality analysis research which have evaluated the effectiveness of Khan Academy. The research are organized by the standard of proof, based on the Each Little one Succeeds Act (ESSA). Examine how our platform outpaces typical development charges and drives studying outcomes.
Nicely-designed and applied experimental research (Tier 1, Robust proof)
Weekly utilization of Khan Academy resulted in optimistic results on math scores and attitudes in direction of math when applied with enough assist, based on Ferman, Finamor, & Lima (2019), who performed a large-scale randomized-control trial throughout 157 major colleges in Brazil. [pdf]
Supplemental use of Khan Academy resulted in higher math scores than teacher-only interventions, based on Buchel, Jakob, Kuhnhanss, Seffen, & Brunetti (2019), who performed a large-scale randomized-control trial with ~3500 third- via sixth-grade college students in El Salvador. [pdf]
College students who used Khan Academy throughout a 19-day summer season program had higher algebra-readiness scores, based on Snipes, Huang, Jaquet, & Finkelstein (2015), who performed a randomized-control trial with 496 seventh-grade college students in a Silicon Valley college district. [pdf]
Nicely-designed and applied quasi-experimental research (Tier 2, Reasonable proof)
College students who used supplemental Khan Academy in blended school rooms additionally had increased efficiency on a standardized math evaluation, based on a quasi-experimental examine with ninth-grade college students in Sri Lanka (Weeraratne & Chin, 2018). [pdf]
College students who used Khan Academy have been extra prone to have higher math efficiency than a conventional math intervention program, based on the outcomes of a quasi-experimental examine of third- and sixth-grade college students in Guatemala (Manuas, 2016). [pdf]
Nicely-designed and applied correlational research (Tier 3, Promising proof)
College students who used Khan Academy MAP Accelerator for half-hour or extra per week noticed higher MAP Progress math scores in comparison with college students who used MAP Accelerator for much less time. This was the primary discovering of a correlational examine with statistical controls performed by Weatherholtz, Grimaldi, & Hill (2022). [pdf]
College students who spent extra time utilizing Khan Academy’s Official SAT prep device have been extra prone to rating increased on the SAT, based on correlational research with controls (Weatherholtz, Grimaldi, Hicks, & Hill, 2020; Faculty Board, 2017). [pdf][pdf]
Use of Khan Academy amongst center college college students within the Lengthy Seashore Unified College District was linked to higher efficiency on a standardized evaluation, based on a correlational examine by Hill, Weatherholtz, & Chattergoon (2018). [pdf]
Neighborhood faculty college students who used Khan Academy have been extra prone to rating increased on the ACCUPLACER math evaluation, based on a examine by Chan, O’Conner, & Peat (2016). [pdf]
