Khan Academy short school pilot results

The quantitative results show that students in the “control” or traditional summer school course increased their average percentage of correct answers by 5.2% over the five-week period, while students in the “treatment” or Khan class, on average, showed a 6.4% increase in their percentage of correct answers. Since the teacher in the Khan classroom worked mostly 1:1 with students, and since students in this cohort learned content at their own pace, these results suggest interesting potential for the blended learning environment. Yet the results alone paint an incomplete picture because not all blended learning classrooms are similar. Accordingly, this report focuses on the key insights gained from our pilot and provides suggestions for the role of the teacher, student interaction, space configuration, software considerations, and hardware usage. The hope is that others similarly can experiment to find new models for School 2.0 and share their learning.
