The Catholic Witness reports that 4th grade students at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School in Coal Township have increased their math fact fluency from 35% to 80% using Reflex through a grant and it has helped to also grow their confidence and self-esteem.
“Reflex is a motivational program that offers students a variety of games that facilitate the learning process. It offers an adaptive experience, sending students back to areas that they need to work on. It builds on the individual student’s strengths in math to keep them engaged and motivated to work on their weaknesses,” says Deacon Martin McCarthy, High School Principal at Lourdes Regional.
“The difference in their computation skills is remarkable,” says Immaculate Heart of Mary Sister Maureen Donati, Elementary School Principal. “For a number of the students, the improvement took place in a very short time. As a result of their success, their self-esteem and their leadership skills are growing.”
Their progress has been so impressive, the school will be making Reflex available next year for all students in grades 2-6. Read the full article for more.
