In one of Jonily’s 6th-grade classes, she completed all 12 reference tasks, including all math standards for the grade. When they took the standardized annual testing, their results were astounding. She served gifted and learning support students and children at all levels. She taught a cohort of 6th-grade math students. For the end-of-year state test, 27% of the students passed their grade 5 test. After this instructional model during grade 6 with the Reference Tasks, 60% of this group passed, and 92% showed growth based on state indicators. She has been able to replicate results similar to this one while teaching other math teachers her innovative approach to mathematics.
