Students taking Ohio state exams need to earn a minimum of 18 points out of 35 across seven end-of-course exams in order to graduate. For students preparing to retake the exams, the district needed to identify and remediate learning gaps.
The district implemented a pilot program in two high schools with Apex Learning Tutorials to prepare students for end-of-course retakes. Adaptive Tutorials provided focused instruction to remediate students’ learning gaps. Scaffolds and supports helped students stay motivated to learn more challenging material and feel prepared for the tests.
- 50% of students increased their end-of-course exam scores
- Average retake scores increased 14 points, from 676 to 690
With the success of the pilot program, the district site coordinator and high school principals are planning for a strategic implementation of Tutorials to support more students preparing for end-of-course exams.
