Marzano findings
Marzano strategic plan--to prepare our students for the 21 findings:

When corrected for attenuation, the percentile gain associated with the use of Promethean ActivClassroom is 17 percent. A reasonable inference is that the overall effect of a 17 percentile point gain is probably not a function of random factors that are specific to the independent treatment/control studies; rather, the 17 percentile point increase represents a real change in student learning.


Marzano study
Marzano strategic plan--to prepare our students for the 21 Study

The meta-analytic findings suggest relatively large percentile gains in student achievement under the following conditions:

1. A teacher is experienced.

2. A teacher has used Promethean ActivClassroom for an extended period of time.


Marzano study1

4. A teacher has high confidence in his or her ability to use Promethean ActivClassroom.
