Achieve3000's 2017-18 Platform Release Offers Major Smarty Ants Enhancements

The 2017-18 release includes exciting new features & learning solutions within Smarty Ants, our highly effective differentiated foundational literacy solution.

For the 2017-18 school year, Achieve3000® has invested millions in exciting new features and solutions for even greater literacy gains at all levels. For our youngest learners, we have updated Smarty Ants®, our highly effective differentiated foundational literacy solution that accelerates student achievement in an engaging, interactive, research-based learning environment for grades PreK-2. The new additions to Smarty Ants are a key highlight of the 2017-18 platform release:

  • Educators can seamlessly access resources and explore student data faster with the teacher dashboard’s fresh new look and streamlined organization. Data, materials, and awards can now be more easily monitored and shared by printing views for individual students, single classes, or all classes.
  • A recent migration from Flash to HTML5 provides enhanced games and activities to increase student engagement. Plus, platform flexibility provides more blended learning options by enabling students to access Smarty Ants from even more devices.
  • A new solution is currently in development: Smarty Ants Español for students in grades PreK-2, to leverage the power of Smarty Ants and accelerate Spanish literacy in Spanish immersion, dual-language, and bilingual classrooms.

Smarty Ants puts all students in Grades PreK-2 on the path to college and career literacy success by ensuring that every learner can build the strong foundational reading skills they need to transition from learning to read to reading to learn. Plus, with new automatic notifications in Smarty Ants, teachers know right away when their students have obtained strong foundational literacy skills and are ready for the greater challenge of reading comprehension in KidBiz3000®.

Achieve3000 continues to offer the only literacy platform in English and Spanish that provides differentiated instruction with customized modules of content and embedded assessments to automatically deliver grade-appropriate text at students’ individual reading levels, with editions that are customized for state curricula and assessments. The Achieve3000 platform is powered by built-in blended learning, actionable data, and proven efficacy, ensuring equity of access to core instruction while accelerating student learning, improving performance on high-stakes assessments, and preparing all students for college and career success.
