Disadvantaged students independently proven to improve June 2020

An EEF-commissioned report analysed 300,000 students in 250 schools over 9 years. 

  • 'Disadvantaged students' improved most - between a fifth and nearly half a GCSE grade better per subject with ten hours' usage (two set tasks per week). 
  • All students who had spent ten hours or more using their SAM Learning account during Year 11 showed significant positive impact between a ninth and a third of a grade per subject.

Earlier FFT Impact reports

Prior to the EEF-commissioned report (above), an earlier ten-year series of impact studies by FFT (Fischer Family Trust) from 2002 to 2011, showed real impact on progress, especially at GCSE, by students with 10 task hours' use of e-learning. Students with the lowest prior attainment, including disadvantaged students, improved nearly double the average.
