40 Years Of Usage Beyond School Hours For Students Using ExploreLearning Reflex

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ExploreLearning, a division within Cambium Learning Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ABCD), announced today that students using Reflex logged 350,000 hours, the equivalent of 40 years, outside of school hours during the 2011-12 school year. During this time, students gained over 2.8 million new fluent facts. The online math fact fluency program is helping educators extend learning in mathematics beyond the school day for hundreds of thousands of students across North America and around the world.

Reflex is an adaptive and individualized solution helping students develop automaticity with basic math facts. With 100% online access, students can access their account from any computer with an Internet connection and teachers can easily monitor and support student progress. The system allows students to play an increasingly large number of engaging, fast-paced games with rewards for effort and progress, keeping interest and motivation at high levels.

At St. Vincent Ferrer School in Boca Raton, Florida, Reflex is an integral part of the instructional program, with the goals of 100% math fact fluency and increased success in more complex mathematics. Students in grades 2-6 are required to use Reflex three times a week outside of classroom hours, but data shows that students are actually far exceeding that expectation. For every hour spent in class using Reflex, students spent six hours outside of class using the product. During the 2011-12 school year, St. Vincent Ferrer students logged over 5,000 Reflex hours outside of classroom hours while answering 1.4 million facts, or four times the number of facts answered in-class. "Having students learn their facts at home allows them more time to learn, practice and make sense of problems in the classroom," says Margaret Statler, the school's Reflex coordinator.

The result has been quite positive, with St. Vincent Ferrer students' average fluency rising from 22% to 87%. "There is no doubt that Reflex is increasing my students' fluency in basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts.  I can see the positive correlation in my classroom:  the higher the fact fluency, the more a student is able to concentrate on learning higher-level math concepts.  This is because the student is not bogged down by slow or incorrect computation," says teacher Julie O'Brien. "Now that we've introduced our students and parents to Reflex, I know we can never go back to flashcards!"
