Evidence of Effectiveness

KA Lite, an offline version of Khan Academy, is impacting learners in the Idaho Department of Corrections. The first 20 prisoners using Khan Academy exercises offline all passed the math portion of their GED course—the first time that had ever happened.

What They're Saying

“I’m retired and a math tutor for a non-profit organization that helps people get the GED Degree. I use Khan videos and problems as student assignments for both homework and preparation for class. Using Khan material allows me to spend more valuable “face to face” time with my students working on areas they need help – and my students love the Khan material. Also, the coaching reports allow me to see what material the student was using and what problems they were encountering before they walk in the door. The Khan material has significantly improved the effectiveness of our tutoring sessions and has saved me a lot of time — Thanks for me and my students.”
