Improved literacy is as much of an imperative for adult learners as it is for 2-12 learners. As the need to comprehend increasingly complex information grows in the post-secondary education and the workplace, many adults are challenged to keep up. That’s why Achieve created the Spark3000 differentiated instruction solution.
Spark3000 works in much the same way as Achieve’s award-winning, proven-effective KidBiz3000®, TeenBiz3000® and Empower3000™ solutions. By reaching students at their individual reading levels, and assessing progress continually, Spark3000 accelerates literacy gains that translate into greater ability to make career and workforce gains. Because it’s accessible 24/7 anywhere there is an Internet connection, Spark3000 provides the convenience and flexibility adult learners require.
