There have been many recorded successes of Study Technology worldwide. In Mexico City, for example, Study Technology was introduced into a private high school in which one class had a 95% failure rate on their material. After the students learned to use Study Technology, the same class achieved a 90% passing rate.
A study undertaken in England found that students improved their reading levels by 1.3 years after only ten hours of study using Mr. Hubbard’s study procedures.
A literacy program in South Africa produced an average gain in reading level of 2.25 years. In the same country, the pass rate of students enrolled in 19 government schools increased from 43 to 78 percent after the Study Technology had been in use for only six months.
Also in Southern Africa, Education Alive, an Applied Scholastics affiliated organization, introduced Study Technology into a teacher’s college. The dropout rate for teacher trainees fell dramatically, to only 2 percent, as a direct and immediate result of the program.
In Los Angeles, California in the United States, students at a school which uses Study Technology throughout its curriculum regularly score 30% above the national average on pre-college aptitude tests. Their fourth grade students consistently score two or more grade levels above the norm in reading, math and language on standardized achievement tests.
