All schools are unique, just as all students are unique. We are excited to hear from you! 

The Ascend Math Gold Medal form provides background information on your model and will allow us to share in your success. The short submission form requests the following information:

  1. What has been Ascend’s impact on student achievement? What are the actual outcomes (Ascend results, state or third-party test results, etc)? Tell us your process in determining these outcomes.
    • Ex: In a third party growth monitoring assessment, all students have shown tremendous growth with the 7th grade students outpacing typical growth by 123%. During mid- September through mid-April over 55% of students have completed 1 or more levels. Over 10% have completed 2 or more levels, we have seen a positive increase in NWEA growth scores with some students increasing by 10 or more points (common growth is 5-6 points).
  2. Describe your implementation model.
    • Ex: RTI, Credit Recovery, Special Education
  3. Describe the challenges your school or district faced. What were your reasons for adopting Ascend Math?
  4. What were your desired objectives when originally implementing Ascend Math?
    • Ex: State Test Results, total hours worked, objectives completed, grade level growth, pre test/ post test growth.
  5. How has Ascend Math assisted in student engagement?
    • Students are engaged by the way the program is structured. The steps that they take to reach the Post Test help prepare them for success. They love being able to go to Base Camp and many are trying to earn the Amazon gift card.
  6. How many students use Ascend Math?
  7. On average, how many hours per week are they on Ascend?
  8. How many teachers use Ascend Math?
