One of the many reasons that educators love using Penda is because it helps their students practice working on the content they’ll encounter on high-stakes tests, but Penda’s fun, game-based format eliminates the anxiety that comes with testing. Penda’s friendly sense of competition and built-in rewards for playing encourages students to practice in and out of school hours, leading to skill development, mastery and confidence.
Miami Jackson Senior High School has seen excellent outcomes in our Biology End-of-Course Exam results, and I feel that the use of Penda has contributed to student success.

We were flat lined for 4 years at Lost Lake Elementary School and with Penda went up 6% last year (56 to 62) at high achieving group of students. Now this year at EHES 32 to 49 at a Title I school. Yep Penda helps all!!

Penda was so very instrumental in helping our students to move proficiency levels and grow this year. We made great gains on the state test.

We taught biology for the first time last year in middle school. And we used the content to help with that as well. Our biology proficiency was actually at 76%. That was just a really awesome surprise and I know that that had to do with the supplementing of Penda that we used in the class and outside the class.
