A study from K-12 data management company BrightBytes used data collected from the company’s analytics platform to measure learning outcomes from digital apps.

Schools will buy these licenses, and then they never really get touched,” says Baker, who analyzed the data and co-authored the report. The majority of purchased licenses don’t get used. A median of 97.6 percent of licenses analyzed in Baker’s study were never used “intensively” (for 10 or more hours between assessments), despite the recommendations of the edtech app providers.
