Khan Academy helps personalised instruction

Type: Evidence | Hypothesis: Student impact | Polarity: | Sector: | Country:

A research report by SRI International on the use of Khan Academy in nine California schools during the school years 2011-12 and 2012-13 states that:

Eight in ten teachers also reported that Khan Academy increased their ability to monitor students’ knowledge and ability, thus helping to identify students who were struggling. Among teacher survey respondents, 82% reported that Khan Academy helped them identify students who were ahead of the rest of the class, 82% said it helped them expose advanced students to concepts beyond their grade level, and 65%, including 72% of teachers in schools serving low-income communities, said that Khan Academy increased their ability to help struggling students catch up. Slightly more than half the teachers (56%) reported that using Khan Academy helped them determine what content they needed to reteach or could skip, and 32% of teachers overall and 48% of teachers in schools serving low-income communities reported that Khan Academy helped them move more quickly through the curriculum.” (p. x-xi)
