Reading software yields gains in Michigan

Students at Oakland Elementary, in the School District of the City of Royal Oak, began working with Scientific Learning’s Fast ForWord software in the spring of 2008. From the fall of 2007 to the fall of 2008, the percentage of Oakland Elementary students scoring at the “proficient” level or above in English-language arts on the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) increased.

"At Oakland Elementary, where MEAP scores had traditionally been low, students’ reading scores skyrocketed,” said Carol M. Hansen, executive director for student services.

This fall, the urban district expanded the Fast ForWord program to all six elementary schools.
