SPONSORED CASE STUDY

Math scores rise quickly after
Missouri district implements
comprehensive program in
elementary schools
Everyday Mathematics 4 was selected by Columbia Public Schools after rigorous review

T

he process to select a new elementary math program
for Columbia Public Schools began four years ago. K12
Math Coordinator Dana Hibbard located the highestperforming schools in Missouri and selected their top two
math programs for piloting in her district of 18,555 students.
It's been barely a year that Everyday Mathematics 4 has
been in all K5 classrooms in Columbia, but Hibbard has already seen dramatic evidence it was the right choice.
The average scale scores on Renaissance Star Math computer-adaptive assessments went up for students in grades
2 through 5 from January 2017 to January 2018. Specifically,
student scores in second grade went from 374.2 to 498.1;
third grade, from 481.9 to 576.9; fourth grade, 568.5 to 649.9;
and fifth grade, 640.3 to 712.7.
"We're doing the right thing,'' says Judi Privitt, assistant coordinator for K5 math. "We're making great progress."

lot, and 97 percent felt Everyday Mathematics was an adequate resource for them as teachers, and 95 percent felt
there was student engagement at a level they appreciated,"
Privitt says. "We also had some quantitative data-and Everyday Math came out on top of that as well-but we really
liked that teachers felt comfortable."

Research-based instruction
Everyday Mathematics 4 is a comprehensive K6 math program that provides multiple pathways to learning to help
teachers meet the needs of every student in their classroom.
The program features a robust set of assessment tools as well
as an online evaluation and reporting system that provides a Parent engagement
During the pilot, teachers completed periodic surveys and
