Based on decades of scientific research, Achieve3000's proven and patented method of online differentiated instruction engages all learners at their individual reading levels and constantly challenges them to improve their literacy skills.

Our Methodology

Our solutions steadily increase students' ability to read, comprehend, apply and communicate information derived from complex text.

1 LevelSet™ Assessment

Step 1 - LevelSet™ Assessment

LevelSet™ Assessment

Students take LevelSet™, designed by MetaMetrics®, to establish a baseline Lexile level.

2 Differentiated, Tailored Text

Step 2 - Differentiated, Tailored Text

Differentiated, Tailored Text

The student receives differentiated, grade-appropriate,nonfiction passages, matched to his individual Lexile level.

3 Ongoing Assessment

Step 3 - Ongoing Assessment

Ongoing Assessment

The student completes regular assessments, aligned to grade-level standards, which measure his ability to comprehend informational text.

4 Adaptive Content

Step 4 - Adaptive Content

Steps up text complexity as reading improves

As the student progresses toward 40 activities for the semester (80 for the year), his reading abilities are evaluated, and text rigor is increased when progress is detected.

Intensive Intervention

Successful RtI implementations are dependent on effective rotation models, which allow for small-group, teacher-led instruction that hone in on specific skills deficits. The Achieve3000 Classroom is designed for Tier II small group instruction or Tier III intensive one-to-one intervention and is fully equipped to support instruction in reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary, fluency, and foundation skills. Given Achieve3000’s focus on nonfiction content and vocabulary, your intervention students will not miss out on the essential grade-level, standards-aligned instruction in Science and Social Studies classes.

1:1 Devices

Choosing hardware for your 1:1 initiative is easy as Achieve3000 is fully compatible with the leading mobile devices from the Apple® iPad® to Google Chromebook™—and beyond. As the leading cloud-based literacy instructional solution, you can enable anytime, anywhere learning using Achieve3000 solutions. If Internet connectivity is an issue, then using the offline and online options in the Achieve3000 suite of apps will ensure all students have access to accelerated learning.

Station Rotation

When considering the core ELA/literacy station in your blended learning program, draw on the patented, adaptive, and personalized lesson cycle found in Achieve3000. By using precisely matched text using a student’s Lexile score and the auto-adjust feature, Achieve3000 ensures that all students will be able to access your curriculum and engage in the daily lesson without exceptions.

Lab Rotation

If you have a computer for every child for one or more days a week, you can easily meet our goal of two activities per week and Simple Rigor™ model. Labs can be in the form of mobile laptop carts, a separate classroom, or media center. Students can complete their independent work at their Lexile reading level in the lab. Then teachers follow up in the classroom with the Stretch level to complete the lesson cycle.

Flipped Classroom

The Simple Rigor™ model of combining student independent learning and practice with teacher led instruction is a good match for the flipped classroom. Students can complete their independent work at their Lexile reading level outside of the classroom—even if they don’t have an Internet connection. Then teachers can use the real-time data to inform the instructional plan and complete the lesson cycle using the Stretch lesson.

Individual Rotation

Through innovative and flexible tools, such as the exclusive My Lessons and Search features, you or your students can build a personalized playlist to accelerate literacy gains. Through our Lexile-based and proprietary algorithm, you know your students are receiving the right fit of text for their reading level and following a routine that will accelerate gains through every day practice.

Flex Model

Students are in the driver’s seat with Achieve3000 at the core of personalized learning time in your flex blended learning model. With real-time data and student-teacher communication tools, teachers can guide and monitor learning while allowing students to pursue self-directed, self-paced work in study or collaboration spaces. Ongoing assessments and the auto-adjustment of differentiated lessons allow for the Achieve3000 lessons to match precisely to the student’s learning level as they move through the school year.

Single Computer with Projector

Need to work with your whole class? In a small-group setting? Introduce grade level text, concepts, raise essential questions, and facilitate discussion and debate by projecting an article or poll question to the whole class Students can use one of our many graphic organizers available to teachers, to begin the lesson, and then either use their tablet, go to their Center, or to the Computer Lab to re-read the article and complete the Five-Step Literacy Routine.

Home School

If you are homeschooling your children and looking for adaptive, personalized instruction, Achieve3000 solutions will work for you with just a computer or tablet with a Web browser and Internet connection. Get your learners up and running in minutes and rely on the rich on-demand Professional Development resources to support your homeschool instructional model. Qualified home school teachers/parents can purchase directly through the Home School Buyers Co-Op.

Research: National Lexile Study

The results of a nationwide, year-long study that looked at the achievement of more than 756,976 students in 4,789 schools showed that students using Achieve3000®'s KidBiz3000®, TeenBiz3000® or Empower3000™ solutions increased their expected reading gains by more than two-and-a-half times with regular program use. See for yourself how Achieve3000 has been shown to deliver double-to-triple Lexile gains when used just twice per week. Download Study
