PreK-12 Education Efficacy Studies and User Reports

Pearson is a company with a strong sense of purpose, focusing on three key issues of social and economic importance: literacy, efficacy, and competitiveness. We aim to make a measurable difference to learning outcomes for students and educators, and our rigorous research methods—both in-house and independently conducted—provide solid evidence that our products, programs, and services are helping to enhance and further academic achievement. Building and maintaining trust is at the core of our business. By providing substantive, verifiable studies reflecting the effectiveness of our preK-12, higher education, and assessment programs, we are able to shine a spotlight on the deep connection between our commitment to excellence and demonstrated student success.

Research-based instruction with embedded assessment, coupled with Pearson’s efficacy studies conducted by leading educational research organizations, provides schools quality programs aimed at ensuring success for all students whether they be on level, advanced, struggling and at-risk, or the nation’s growing number of English language learners.

Pearson Student Mobile Device Survey

Pearson ran the Student Mobile Device Survey to better understand how students use mobile technology for learning. The survey focused on how students use the mobile devices they currently own for learning, and how they would like to use those devices in the future. The survey asked students from grade 4 through college about the mobile devices that they own and intend to buy; how they currently use mobile devices for school work and how they expect to use them in the future; and their attitudes towards tablets for learning.

Harris Interactive ran the survey on behalf of Pearson between January 28 and February 24, 2013 among 3,556 U.S. students, including 500 elementary school (4th-5th grade) students, 750 middle school (6th-8th grade) students, 1,100 high school (9th – 12th grade) students, and 1,206 college students.

For the state reports, Harris surveyed additional elementary, middle-school, and high-school students in California, Texas, Florida, and New York.
