“Strong Evidence” – Achieve3000 Recognized for Its “Largest Effect” on Student Success

Achieve3000 receives one of only two “Strong Evidence” ratings by the Center for Research and Reform in Education for its effectiveness for middle and high school students.

LAKEWOOD, N.J., Sept. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The influential organization Center for Research and Reform in Education (CRRE) at Johns Hopkins University School of Education has recognized Achieve3000® for providing “strong evidence” of efficacy for middle and high school students and “promising evidence” of efficacy for elementary school students on its Evidence for ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) website. Schools that qualify for ESSA funding are required to select and implement only those programs with strong, moderate, or promising evidence of effectiveness.

In this research assessment, Achieve3000 was shown to have the largest effect size at the middle and high school levels. Such impact was only attained by one other company.

“We are incredibly proud to earn the highest rating possible,” explained Chief Executive Officer Saki Dodelson. “Only programs that meet the highest degree of efficacy standards will qualify for ESSA funding, and because of its proven success, Achieve3000 is at the top of that list.”

We achieved this turnaround by adopting a balanced literacy approach in every classroom. Here, we descript our imitative and encourage fellow educators to consider similar efforts.

Achieve3000 continues to offer the only literacy platform in English and Spanish that provides differentiated instruction with embedded assessments to automatically deliver grade-appropriate content at students’ individual reading levels. It features content modules that are customized for state, district, or country curricula and assessments, as well as several implementation models, such as Tier II and III intervention and English language learner programs.

Supported with industry-leading professional development that ensures successful implementation, the Achieve3000 platform is powered by built-in blended learning, actionable data, and proven efficacy, providing 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.

Evidence for ESSA sets the standard for the most up-to-date and reliable information on education programs that meet ESSA evidence requirements, which were passed with bipartisan support in Congress.

Dodelson continued, “Our mission is to give all educators the ability to use one platform to reach every kid, of every ability, using our patented method of reaching all students at their precise Lexile® level. Thousands of schools use Achieve3000 to accelerate reading gains and prepare kids for college and career. Now, evidence for ESSA makes it clear: Achieve3000 provides the greatest effect.”
