The Problem: The most recent Nation's Report Card from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) shows that many 8th–12th graders are still struggling to become proficient in mathematics. The Solution: Summit Bridge courses strategically intersperse below- level content among on-level content to present an acceleration path. Summit Bridge math courses were designed for students who have demonstrated a lack of readiness for success in Algebra I, Algebra II*, or Geometry. Throughout the course, students are exposed to pre-requisite content strategically interspersed among on-level content to present an acceleration path. This path of instruction is designed to serve students known to be significantly and broadly behind. Why does it work? Each student's experience is specific to his or her requirements at the exact time of the need. Unit-level diagnostic experience, delivered in two parts, charts a student's personal path back to on-level content. Summit Bridge Math Courses Help Close the Learning Gap to Bring Students On-level Percentage of students at or above mathematics NAEP Proficient** Grade 8 34% 25% Grade 12 Course Introduction 1: Expressions and Problem Solving 1.01: Unit Diagnostic 1 1.02: Unit Diagnostic 2 First, students receive pairings of recommended content (using the recommender engine) and quizzes from prerequisite content, one level back. Second, the course dynamically adjusts using release conditions. Recommended content/quiz pairings are included in diagnostic part 2, delving two prerequisite levels back, based on student performance in part 1. 1.02: Unit Diagnostic 2 Compare Expressions If the student scores less than 70% on the diagnostic, bridge content is served up in the next lesson.
