The Daily Juice
Efficacy You Can Count On
Based on results from our initial study, students who read The Daily Juice for four weeks saw clear improvements in their reading comprehension skills, as well as their knowledge of current events and civics. Students also obtained a greater confidence in having conversations about the news with their friends and especially parents.
- Parents noticed this change, reporting greater curiosity and awareness about the news in their children.
- Across the board, students found The Daily Juice to be a reliable and unbiased source of information. In focus groups, students specifically noted a contrast with other new sources including mainstream news organizations such as CNN and Fox News, as well as social media.
- Teachers who use The Daily Juice have reported similar findings in focus groups.
We conducted a study in early 2021 to assess the educational effectiveness of The Juice. The recruited students were in the fourth through twelfth grades, with a majority between grades 4-6 and 9-10. 52% of the students identified as male, while 49% identified as female, and came from a mix of public and private schools. A third of the students came from families of diversity. Students in the program were expected to complete The Juice every week day for four weeks—a total of 20 editions. At the start of the program, students were assessed for their reading comprehension skills, knowledge of civics and current events, and critical thinking dispositions. At the end of the program, students took a similar assessment. Parents and students also participated separately in a final interview.
Reading comprehension scores increased on average 25%. Civics / current event scores increased 14%.
For participating, students were paid $125 and entered into a raffle for a pair of AirPods Pro.
The Juice is currently planning larger, more comprehensive studies on our product’s educational effectiveness. These upcoming studies will include control group comparisons, a larger, more diverse cohort of students, and / or a longer period of treatment because we understand the importance of rigorous testing and comprehensive evidence.
