The I CAN Learn® Education System is an interactive, self-paced, mastery-based software system that includes the I CAN Learn® Fundamentals of Math (5th–6th grade math) curriculum, the I CAN Learn® Pre-Algebra curriculum, and the I CAN Learn® Algebra curriculum. Studies included in this WWC review assess the effectiveness of the Pre-Algebra and Algebra components of the I CAN Learn® Education System. One study of I CAN Learn® Pre-Algebra and Algebra meets What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards and four studies meet WWC evidence standards with reservations. The five studies included 16,519 eighth-grade students from middle schools in California, Florida, Georgia, and Louisiana. Based on these five studies, the WWC considers the extent of evidence for I CAN Learn®Pre-Algebra and Algebra to be medium to large for math achievement.
