100 Percent of Educators Report English Language Growth with Achieve3000 in Digital Promise Pilot Study

A Digital Promise Pilot Study showed outstanding results, with 100 percent of educators reporting an increase in students’ English language acquisition after using Achieve3000.

 

Lakewood, NJ – November 30, 2017 – Achieve3000 announced today the results from a recent Digital Promise Pilot Study involving two League of Innovative Schools members that piloted educational technology program use with English language learners. The pilot conducted in Cajon Valley, CA, showed outstanding results, with 100 percent of educators reporting an increase in students’ English language acquisition after using Achieve3000’s patented literacy platform.

Data also showed that students who participated in the pilot demonstrated statistically significant growth on the LevelSet™ assessment embedded in Achieve3000’s solutions that measures students’ initial Lexile® scores and their growth over time. Overall, students in the pilot gained 2.5 times the Lexile growth of students in the comparison group who did not use Achieve3000 at all. Further, usage data indicated a correlation between high rates of use and increased student learning.

“The Cajon Valley Union School District is looking forward to scaling our partnership with Achieve 3000 districtwide. We are extremely pleased with the pilot, research, and results.  Smart, adaptive, and research based technologies for learning in the hands of the stellar teachers of Cajon Valley is a win for all students” declared David Miyashiro, Superintendent of Cajon Valley Union School District.

“Achieve3000 is designed to provide equity of access to core instruction for all students, including English language learners. By differentiating content to meet each student’s unique reading level, our solutions are proven to substantially impact reading gains,” said Saki Dodelson, Achieve3000’s founder and CEO. “We are thrilled that Digital Promise’s study with Cajon Valley saw significant results, as well. Cajon Valley is well-known for its focus on excellence and innovation, and we’re proud to partner with them.”

Achieve3000’s literacy platform provides content differentiated at 12 levels in English and 8 in Spanish and is aligned to all 50 states’ standards. Achieve3000’s patented and proven solutions for grades PreK-12 and adult education allow students of every ability level to access the same grade-appropriate content as their peers but at their individual reading levels.
