Saxon Math Has Mixed Effects on Math Achievement for Primary Students
Saxon Math is a curriculum for students in grades K–12 based on incremental development and continual review, focused on limiting the amount of new math content students receive each day and incorporating daily practice of those concepts.
The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) recently reviewed the research on Saxon Math and its effects on primary students (grades K–8) for the Primary Mathematics topic area. This report includes research examined in prior Saxon Math intervention reports published in 2013, as well as new studies. Based on this research, the WWC found Saxon Math to have mixed effects on math achievement for primary students.
