Assisted by Project LIFT and Public Impact, Ransom IB embraces a unique approach to utilizing digital learning and started piloting this with a 6th grade math team. The idea was simple: provide a team of 6th grade math teachers a computer lab with 35 computers and a full-time learning coach assigned to working with the students in the computer lab every day. The overarching purpose of the program involves allowing teachers with the ability to assign activities to subgroups of students every day based on assessment data. A group of students from each teacher's classroom will also rotate to a lab each day, and, under the guidance of the learning coach, complete various activities. Meanwhile, teachers work with small groups of students on specific concepts identified as areas of need by assessment data.

In 2013-2014 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
