Fast ForWord is computer software used as a supplement to ordinary teaching. It allows students to go at their own pace, and rewards students based on completion of content. The program makes extensive use of graphics to clarify concepts and motivate students.
One qualifying study, in rural Tennessee, evaluated Fast ForWord. On state Terra Nova tests, compared to controls, students in grades 5-6 using Fast ForWord scored higher than controls, with an effect size of +0.25. This qualifies Fast ForWord for the ESSA “Promising” category.
