Penda Successfully Decreases Knowledge and Achievement Gaps in Math and Science in DeSoto ISD, TX 

Key Findings:
  • The gaming platform increases the level of interest of students for math and science. Students love the avatar-based activities.

  • Educators are able to make data-driven decisions weekly based on the automatic progress monitoring reports.

  • Usage by students is automatically tracked for critical time-on-task evaluation.

  • Penda redefined progress monitoring for the district by tracking progress on each Texas Knowledge and Skill (TEKS) standard.

  • Infusion of literacy within the math and science content – important in Texas but also a new requirement for Common Core states. Penda lessons mirror the PARCC standards with compare and contrast activities that emphasize higher order thinking skills.
