In this peer-reviewed study, performance on state math and ELA tests were compared for fifth-grade students in different implementation levels of LiM (i.e., LiM, Lighthouse LiM, and non-LiM). Lighthouse-LiM Schools had significantly better performance on math and ELA tests than LiM and non-LiM Schools.
• (p=.006) LiM Lighthouse School’s ELA achievement scores significantly higher
• (p=.013) LiM Lighthouse School’s Math achievement scores significantly higher
