From High-Achievers to Struggling Readers: Deeply Differentiated Instruction

Through deeply differentiated instruction, your Pro International Edition helps all students meet International’s grade-level standards and practice for the SBAC assessments.

  • Grade-appropriate content is differentiated at 12 levels in English and 7 in Spanish
  • Strategic curriculum aligns with the Common Core State Standards as well as International’s grade-level standards for science and social studies
  • SBAC Challenge courses give students regular, targeted practice for the SBAC, integrating technology-enhanced items to help them achieve even greater depths of knowledge
  • Educators can further customize Pro with courses aligned to popular textbook programs and NWEA™ MAP® Informed Learning Paths

Pro ensures all students can engage with standards-aligned instruction by tailoring both a high-interest, nonfiction article and an academic background text to each student’s individual reading level, and then “stretching” students to grade-level or higher text with targeted and purposeful teacher-led instruction. Throughout each lesson, the 5-Step Literacy Routine helps students build the vocabulary, comprehension and writing skills needed to succeed on the SBAC.

15-Year Track Record of Success: Proven Effective for All Learners

As the Leader in Differentiated Instruction® for more than 15 years, Achieve3000 has a proven track record of doubling or even tripling expected reading gains. In fact, a national study of 879,872 students showed that students who used Achieve3000 as little as twice per week grew by an average of 141 Lexile points – two times the 69 Lexile points expected with typical instruction! 

In addition, 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
  • Learning gains of students who used Achieve3000 were statistically significant and substantively important based on the What Works Clearinghouse threshold of 0.25
  • Improvement on the GMRT-4 Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension and Total Reading tests
