To date, very little research has been done K12 adoption on open education. We will focus on OER adoption in two school districts in the state of Washington. We compared 5,242 students who used EnagageNY Math with 6,552 students in comparable districts who used traditional curriculum. In a quasi-experimental study involving multiple regression analysis, we compared end-of-year test scores for these students. Even after controlling for socioeconomic factors, there were no statistically significant differences between the two groups.
