Techbook and Streaming Access Supports Achievement in North Carolina


A recent study found 34 performance indicators that shows schools with Discovery Education’s services performed better on North Carolina’s state assessments.

The analysis of student assessment data in 2016-2017 at North Carolina’s 2,404 public schools also revealed striking results among African-American students, demonstrating up to an 11-point statistically significant advantage over schools without Discovery Education services such as Science Techbook, Math Techbook, and Streaming Plus.

Math Techbook schools have a 9-point statistically significant advantage over non-Discovery Education (DE) schools in the End of Course (EOC) Math 1 assessment. An additional 5.5% of students in DE partner schools met the state’s benchmark in the ACT Math section.

  • Math Techbook schools have an 11-point statistically significant advantage over non-DE schools in the EOC Math 1 assessment.
  • 3-4 point statistically significant advantage for Math Techbook schools in End of Grade (EOG) Math grades 7 and 8.

DE schools have a 7.3 point advantage in EOC Biology. Science Techbook schools have a 2-4 point advantage in End of Grade (EOG) Science for grades 5 and 8.

  • An additional 6.8% of African-American students taking the End of Course (EOC) Biology assessment in DE partner schools meet the state’s college and career ready benchmark compared to students in non-DE schools.
  • Science Techbook schools have a 4-point statistically significant advantage over non-DE schools in EOC Biology and EOG Science Grade 5 .
