ExploreLearning Reflex Student Logins Reach One Million in Product’s First Seven Months
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — ExploreLearning, a business unit of Cambium Learning Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ABCD), announced today that Reflex, their revolutionary new program helping students develop math fact fluency, has reached one million student logins. In that time, students have solved over 125 million math facts. These milestones have been achieved in the seven months since the product was launched in April 2011.
ExploreLearning Reflex is a next generation solution for math fact fluency development that combines research-proven methods with innovative technology. Math fact fluency is the quick and effortless (automatic) recall of basic math facts. Reflex efficiently moves students to fluency by continuously adapting and individualizing instruction, creating an optimal experience for every student. The program also provides educators with intuitive and powerful reporting that helps them effectively monitor and support student progress. For students, Reflex utilizes engaging, fast-paced games and rewards for effort and progress, creating a compelling, motivational environment.
“Math fact fluency is a central pillar of elementary mathematics education,” says David Shuster, Ph.D., Founder and Publisher of ExploreLearning. “With over 125 million facts solved in one million Reflex student sessions to date, Reflex is helping a lot of kids gain confidence in their abilities as they learn their math facts. The fact that they are doing it by playing games and having fun is the icing on the cake.”
From Florida to California, students all over the country are using Reflex. Results are coming in daily that validate the progress students are making. “As a Math Instructional Facilitator, it is part of my job to give a math screening test to every student referred for Response to Intervention. Part of the test is a math fact fluency piece,” says Mary Armstrong from the Bryant School District in Arkansas. “The kids have performed much better on this part this year. When a child knows a tough fact, I usually ask why they know that fact. The answer every time this fall has been ‘I learned it on Reflex.’ I know we are improving school-wide when my struggling learners are improving. Thanks for the wonderful product.”
