Technical appendix for: Learning during COVID-19: Initial findings on students’ reading and math achievement and growth
This technical brief provides additional detail on the samples, methodology, and results from analyses highlighted in the brief, Learning during COVID-19: Initial findings on students’ reading and math achievement and growth.
This study examined patterns of MAP Growth assessment attrition by schools and students from fall 2019 to fall 2020. Demographic differences between students tested in fall 2020 and attriters suggest impacts of COVID-19 on achievement are likely underestimated, highlighting the importance of considering students missing from school or assessment to best support growth and recovery.
How have COVID-19 school closures impacted student academic growth and achievement? New research using fall 2020 MAP Growth assessment data for 4.4 million students provides new insights, key findings, and actionable recommendations.
This study provides a series of projections of COVID-19-related learning loss based on estimates from absenteeism literature and analyses of summer learning patterns of 5 million students.
