Learning Loss - Impact on Future Young Adults

The pandemic-induced learning loss in mathematics is not merely about students forgetting previously acquired knowledge; it's also about the missed opportunities for learning new concepts. Mathematics, being cumulative, requires a strong foundation that builds progressively. The absence of regular, structured learning experiences has left gaps in this foundation, making it challenging for students to grasp more complex concepts as they advance in their education.

Learning Loss and Impact on Future Young Professionals

The Lingering Effects of Unfinished Learning

In the article “COVID-19 and education: The lingering effects of unfinished learning” by McKinsey & Company, explains that The pandemic led to "unfinished learning," with students missing crucial knowledge and skills due to disrupted education. Many learned less, some disengaged entirely, risking future academic and career success. Accurately assessing and addressing these gaps is vital for helping students catch up and thrive post-pandemic.

“Students testing in 2021 were about ten points behind in math and nine points behind in reading, compared with matched students in previous years.”
