Jul 29, 2019


White Paper - Impact Evaluation: Miami-Dade County Public Schools Middle School Science - ETO Division



Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) utilized Penda Learning’s science platform as instructional support in
select middle schools within the Education Transformation Office (ETO) division. The instructional support
provided both supplemental content and science intervention for 8th grade science curricula in the form of digital
online instructional activities assigned to students weekly to boost student performance as measured by the
Florida Grade 8 Statewide Science Assessment (SSA). The FL SSA measures student achievement of the Next
Generation Sunshine State Science Standards.

The purpose of the study was to determine if a relationship existed between Penda Learning data metrics and
student performance on the FL Grade 8 SSA. Analysis of results from the three-month study illuminated patterns of
practice in student usage and mastery of science content.
