Incredible Results from Efficacy Study

A study was conducted by CypherWorx with Excel Beyond the Bell - San Antonio to test the effectiveness of our eLearning Out-of-School-Time Professional Development courses. The study showed remarkable results. Average gains ranged from a low of 17.5 to a high of 32.7 percentage points. The difference between pre- and posttest means are statistically significant (indicating little to no probability that the observed mean differences were random chance). What does this mean for all learners? This proves that eLearning is effective regardless of demographics. 

"We were very pleased to see the results our online courses had across broad demographic audiences. These learning gains definitely prove that the Out of School Time Professional Development Certificate Series courses make an impact on the field of school-age child care and assist practitioners in their knowledge and service to children, youth, and their families."- Paul Cypher, President and CEO of CypherWorx.
