Enhancements Pave the Way to College and Career Readiness and Prepare Students for Key Assessments Through Content Area Literacy

LAKEWOOD, N.J. Aug. 21, 2013Achieve3000 today unveiled a new release of its online differentiated literacy solutions that have been shown to rapidly accelerate literacy gains, boost academic performance across the curriculum, and prepare students for rigorous new standards and state assessments.

Millions of U.S. students currently use Achieve3000’s KidBiz3000™, TeenBiz3000™, and Empower3000™ to build the literacy skills required for college and career readiness. Data show that students who use Achieve3000 regularly show remarkable gains in Lexile® reading scores—up to triple the expected norms. The Lexile Framework is unique because it measures text difficulty and reader ability on the same scale. This makes for an exceptionally effective matching of readers to appropriate texts.

The new release employs the same classroom-tested literacy routine that has generated remarkable results for the past 14 years, and applies that routine in lessons that are rich in science and social studies content. This will help students build literacy skills and content-area knowledge simultaneously, while helping share the responsibility of literacy development across the content areas.

New lessons also provide opportunities for students to synthesize information from a variety of sources and cite evidence when making and supporting arguments—key skills that are required under the new Common Core State Standards. In addition, the system provides practice with interactive assessments similar to the latest Common Core and state tests.

In addition, the system features a Career Center, where students can select careers thatinterest them and find the Lexile levels that are necessary to be successful in those jobs. The system automatically tracks their progress towards that goal, providing a unique motivational tool to encourage students to try even harder.

Teacherswill also see new lesson planning resources and scaffolds that enable them to meet the needs of special populations, such as struggling readers, English language learners, and gifted and talented students.

“At Achieve3000, we are laser-focused on finding new ways to leverage differentiated instruction and powerful technology to accelerate student gains in reading and, ultimately, across the curriculum,” said Achieve3000 CEO and Founder Saki Dodelson. “Year after year, students learning with Achieve3000’s solutions have seen rapid improvement in reading proficiency. Our new design builds on that success with program enhancements that will help all students develop the college and career skills necessary to meet and exceed today’s more rigorous learning and assessment goals.”
