Audio Enhancement Systems for Teaching and Learning

Audio Enhancement Systems Linked to Improving Student Achievement 

Implementation of audio enhancement systems in 5th grade classrooms, Stanford Achievement Test scores improved in Reading, Math, and Science, 10% to 15%. 
The second and third year of audio enhanced classrooms showed similar test gains of 10% improvement over the previous years. It was also found that phonemic and phonological awareness instruction coupled with the use of audio enhancement systems reduced the number of students identified as at-risk learners. (McCarty, CEFPI Paper Presentation, 2003, and BYU Department of Human Development study, 2003)
