Clarke County Achieves 12.8% CRCT Gains in Five Weeks!
Clarke County, Georgia, saw a 12.8% rise in 8th grade state test results after using a new mathematics program from Walch Education this past summer. Originally developed in partnership with Cobb County, Georgia Academic Support Program Comprehensive Mathematics, Grade 8, (Georgia Math) is a complete teacher toolkit that prepares students for the critical mathematics tested by the CRCT
. Tightly aligned to Georgia Performance Standards, it includes more than 100 hours of instruction. The entire program is packaged in an easy-touse 3-ring binder, with every lesson completely reproducible. An accompanying CD-ROM contains the entire program in a fully searchable PDF.
According to Clarke County School District Mathematics Coach Glenda Huff, “The 8th grade teachers loved the resource. The planning time was cut in half for a summer program that was packed with content.” Just as significantly, students using Georgia Math saw their test scores rise 12.8%, from pre-test to post-test. Each unit in Georgia Math includes warm-up activities; direct instruction; practice; hands-on station activities; and multiple choice practice.
The program also includes correlations to Georgia Performance Standards
, a collection of graphic organizers, and pre- and post-assessments that inform instruction and document student achievement. Georgia Academic Support Program Comprehensive Mathematics, Grade 8, is one of many standards-based programs in mathematics, English/language arts, and science developed by Walch Education in partnership with Georgia districts.
