IPod Pilot - Year One Attendance Data

We just completed an analysis of student attendance data for the first year of our IPod Touch Pilot Program.  As expected, we saw improved year-to-year attendance in our IPod classrooms compared to our control classrooms.  In fourth grade, 52% of students in the IPod classroom posted improvements in attendance compared to 33% of students in the control classroom.  In fifth grade, 65% of the IPod students posted improved attendance compared to 37% in the control classroom.  We fully expect these increases in attendance will translate into increases in achievement as well.  Stay tuned for additional data in the coming weeks.
