Measure and Monitor Summer Learning

Summer is short and every minute counts in a summer school program, so most educators don’t have time to administer complicated assessments. Achieve Intensive solves this problem with easy-to-use, built-in assessments. Achieve Intensive is the only summer school solution that includes the LevelSet™ assessment: 

  • Determines students’ mastery of foundational literacy skills or Lexile®reading level and then places them in the appropriate instructional model for their ability level
  • Only universal screener for the reading comprehension of nonfiction text in both English and Spanish
  • Developed in partnership with MetaMetrics®, developers of the Lexile® Framework for Reading
  • Semi-adaptive pre-test measures students’ initial reading levels in as little as 15 minutes
  • Optional post-test available for a summative measurement of student reading gains
  • As students complete lessons with Achieve Intensive, embedded assessments continually monitor their activities:
  • Only formative Lexile assessments that are built right into the instructional routine
  • Monitor performance and engagement without taking away from instructional time
  • Track students’ mastery of language arts, social studies, and science standards

Proven to Accelerate Summer Learning

Achieve Intensive is the only literacy solution that leverages Achieve3000®’s patented methodology to accelerate learning for all summer school students. During summer 2016, a large urban school district implemented Achieve3000 for students in grades 3, 6 and 8. This summer program specifically targeted students who performed in the bottom quarter on the state’s summative assessment – below grade-level learners who were especially at risk for summer reading loss. At all grade levels for the district, students in this summer program on average showed increases in their Lexile scores! 

Students made gains over the five-week summer program that were the equivalent of approximately: 

  • one-quarter of a school year for third-graders 
  • one-half of a school year for sixth-graders 
  • two-thirds of a school year for eighth-graders
