How Early Gaps Cripple Later Grade Achievement

Student learning gaps passed to the next grade become significant, often unsolvable problems that cause teachers to intervene more. Teachers are forced to teach less on-grade course content and focus on past grade content. This necessary gap-filling is a long-term losing proposition. The example below illustrates how learning gaps choke the education process and frustrate both teachers and students.

Student learning gaps interfere with mastering new content. While some prior learning gaps are closed in following grades, the effort is high and consequence is less on-grade material can be taught and learned. Keeping the weight of learning gaps in check maintains forward learning progress and avoids the tractor pull struggle as students move down the education track to graduation.
