Complete unfinished learning and accelerate on-grade proficiency
While state and national studies show academic rebounding, students are still several to double-digit percentile points behind where they should be. As educators help students recover credits or address gaps in prerequisite skills, their goal is to do that while simultaneously progressing students forward. But without the right resources to personalize instruction, learning acceleration becomes just another good idea.
With the Edmentum K-12 learning acceleration solutions—which can be deployed during the school day or in extended-day or extended-year programs—learning acceleration becomes a reality with each student on a path to on-grade proficiency and eventual graduation.
Each grade and classroom is populated with students with a range of skills and knowledge. Uncovering exactly what each student knows and doesn’t is the first step in accelerating learning. Edmentum practice, diagnostic, and benchmark assessments do just that; they identify areas where each student needs help to individualize instruction.
Building a strong foundation of discrete skills and concepts is essential to accelerating learning. Edmentum solutions meet students where they are to ensure that prerequisite skills are solid, and each student grows toward on-grade proficiency.
Increase On-Grade Proficiency
Students who are ready for on-grade instruction or need to recover credits require instruction aligned with state standards. Edmentum solutions provide standards-aligned content, with plenty of support, in active learning environments that engage and motivate students.
Solutions that Work
Educators across the county trust Edmentum to accelerate the growth of their students and have shared evidence of their students’ success.
When students get stuck, they get frustrated. And for students who are recovering credits, frustration can lead to dropping out. The Edmentum digital curriculum provides students with the help and interactive learning opportunities they need to keep moving forward and earn the credits they need to graduate. And it’s flexible to suit a variety of student and programmatic needs including full course, unit, and targeted skill recovery during the school day or in extended day or year programs.

Learning acceleration helps students acquire prerequisite skills and concepts from the previous grade, ideally as the need arises, so there is an immediate connection between remediation and on-grade learning. Edmentum solutions help identify students’ just-in-time needs, fill any gaps, and immediately apply that learning to the topic at hand.
Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) and Response to Intervention (RTI) both provide tiered support to help students achieve on-grade level success and long-term growth. You can identify students who are at risk, plan evidence-based interventions, and monitor ongoing progress using embedded assessments or data from your NWEA™ MAP™ Growth or Renaissance® STAR tests with Exact Path and Study Island.

Reading Eggs—built to the five essential pillars of reading instruction and
proven effective—provides early literacy foundational support, phonics intervention, supplemental instruction, and EL reading support.
English Language Learners (ELL)
Nearly three out of four classrooms include at least one English language learner, and English learners represent the fastest growing student population in the United States. These students not only need language learning opportunities but also literacy and subject-area instruction that supports their acquisition of grade-level skills and concepts. Edmentum offers curriculum to support both needs.
Many educational researchers agree that 1:1 tutoring is probably the single most powerful strategy to support academic recovery. In addition to traditional tutoring, which may happen weekly for an hour or two, high-impact tutoring provides more regular, intensive personal instruction. Support multiple tutoring models—with digital curriculum to help tutors pinpoint and focus on each student’s key needs, virtual intervention services from certified teachers to support foundational skills instruction, and 1:1 virtual tutoring available 24/7—to create a comprehensive tutoring program that gets results.
