“We researched for months looking for a product that closely aligned with the format of the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA),” said Angela Whiddon, principal of W.E. Cherry Elementary in Clay County, Florida. “We were at the point of giving up when we found Waggle. It is exactly what we needed to provide our students with daily practice and exposure to the format of the FSA.”
All practice skills for math and ELA instruction are correlated to each state’s standards. The New York and Florida versions of Waggle help students in grades 2–8 master math and ELA skills, while the Pennsylvania version covers grades 3–8. State standard codes and definitions appear throughout students’ practice and are included in educator reports. The “Find Instructional Material” functionality recommends lessons and resources that are aligned to each state’s standards from Triumph Learning’s Coach curriculum. Teachers can easily assign these lessons to students online within Waggle or use Coach print resources in their classroom.
“We recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all tool for education,” said Aoife Dempsey, CTO at Triumph Learning. “With these state-specific versions of Waggle, we’re able to address the needs of teachers and students in these states to successfully accomplish their learning goals.”
In addition to the new state-specific versions, Triumph Learning is expanding Waggle to include second grade curriculum for mathematics and English language arts. This will help educators track real-time student progress from an earlier age to ensure they are mastering foundational skills.
