Proven to Accelerate Summer Learning
Did you know Achieve3000 is proven to double – or even triple – student reading gains in a single school year? In fact, an independent, gold-standard randomized control trial found that Achieve3000 is significantly more effective at increasing student reading gains than standard English language arts programs!
AchieveSummer is the only literacy solution that leverages Achieve3000’s patented methodology to accelerate learning for all summer school students. During summer 2015, a large urban district implemented AchieveSummer as part of their summer bridge program for 7,649 students. This program specifically targeted below-level readers who had performed in the bottom quarter on their state assessment, and the results were conclusive!
