Effectiveness Studies

Meridian Elementary Meridian Elementary uses Renaissance Learning's STAR Assessments to identify students needing Response to Intervention services.

This year kindergarten students dramatically increased their overall scores compared to last year's kindergarten class. We believe the credit for the increase goes to the Super Star Online program by Help Me 2 Learn.

An independent effectiveness study was conducted by students at Union University to measure the progress of elementary students using our software. From page 33:

Results of dependent t-test indicated that students significantly improved phonic test scores after using the Help Me 2 Learn Phonics game. The average scores for Kindergarten, First, and Second grade students combined were found to significantly increased from a mean score of 62.21 to 81.07. Similar results were demonstrated for third grade students.

From page 34:

The computer-based Help Me 2 Learn Phonics Game proved very beneficial in increasing academic achievement. In addition to the statistically significant improvements in phonic skills, the program also benefited students by allowing them to monitor their own progress independently, work at their own pace, and increase their vocabulary across the curriculum.

Research at Pine Grove Elementary found that post-test scores improved over pre-test scores by as much as 45 percent after using our products:

Class Pre-test Post-test Points Percent
Class A
(did not use Super Star Programs)
8796 7742 -1054 - 12.0%
Class B
(used Super Star Programs)
8216 11324 + 3108 + 37.8%
Class C
(did not Super Star Programs)
8200 8756 + 556 + 6.8%
Class D
(used Super Star Programs)
3748 5444 + 1696 + 45.2%
Class E
(used Super Star Programs)
8284 10076 + 1792 + 21.6%

A study at the Griffin Foundation School District found Super Star Phonics to be particularly helpful for Special Education and ESL:

The "Super Star Phonics by Help Me 2 Learn" Phonics program is a tutorial program especially effective with Special Education students as well as any student requiring remedial reading assistance...Students that have known reading failures in the past are often difficult to motivate, however through the high interest games and activities of the program students become fully engaged in learning.

A study at the Sorrows Catholic School found Letters and Numbers helpful with Preschool and Kindergarten children:

After reviewing the pre and post tests for superstar and meeting with the classroom teachers of each student we put in the pilot program we feel there was a definite improvement for all of our students. We were very pleased to say that all of the students will be going on to the next grade when they were originally thought to be retained.
