eSpark usage correlates with growth on the NWEA MAP assessment. A 2016 analysis of 26,772 students in 38 districts found that students who had completed 5 or more eSpark missions grew 10 or more national percentile points on the NWEA MAP.
By comparison, students who did not complete an eSpark mission achieved only 3 percentile points of growth on the same assessment.
