One of the top ten largest school districts in the state of Texas uses Apex Learning Courses to support struggling students at risk of dropping out of school.

The purpose of this research is to study the effectiveness of Apex Learning Courses as used in a large city school district. Students who used Courses were compared to students not identified as struggling with similar prior ability and demographic characteristics.

Results show:

  • Struggling students using Apex Learning Courses achieved similar average scores as students enrolled in traditional district courses.
  • The promotion rate for struggling students using Courses trended higher than that of students enrolled in traditional district courses.
