New digital platform pairs assessment with resources to diagnose skill gaps, group students and assign targeted instruction to move more students from intervention to reading success
Today, 95 Percent Group LLC, the trusted source for proven literacy solutions, introduced 95 Literacy Intervention System™. This new digital platform puts the tools for diagnosing skill gaps, digitally grouping students with similar needs and assigning targeted reading instruction at teachers’ fingertips. Linking to 95 Phonics Core Program™ and 95 Phonics Lesson Library™, the 95 Literacy Intervention System allows teachers to ensure all students receive the targeted instruction they need to quickly graduate from intervention. This newest innovation is part of the One95™ Literacy Ecosystem, a proven approach for building student literacy skills across all tiers of instruction.
“Identifying and closing skill gaps early is essential and provides a strong foundation for reading success. At 95 Percent Group, we want to empower teachers with knowledge, resources and support to intervene quickly and easily and that’s exactly what our new 95 Literacy Intervention System provides,” said Laura Stewart, Chief Academic Officer, 95 Percent Group. “It is a complete instructional ecosystem that provides teachers with knowledge and insights into students’ development as readers, the resources to support their development and data to monitor their progress.”
With the 95 Literacy Intervention System, teachers can identify skill gaps at a granular level using comprehensive digital diagnostic and assessment tools, and then automatically group students at similar skill levels across classrooms, grades and schools. The system connects teachers with targeted resources that align with the unique needs of individual learners and provides them with embedded professional learning to stay current on evidence-aligned structured literacy best practices. Student groups are skills-based so when a student masters that skill, they move out of that group and on to building other skills.
“It can be a big challenge for teachers and schools to identify exactly when and how to help students that aren’t able to keep up with core reading instruction. Once we understand this, the next big challenge is how to efficiently address the different needs of many students with limited resources,” said Susan Adelmann, Vice President, Digital Platforms, for 95 Percent Group. “The 95 Literacy Intervention System solves this for educators. It is a breakthrough technology for data-driven literacy instruction and a game changer accelerating literacy skills.”
The 95 Literacy Intervention System feeds real-time data up to school and district levels, empowering key decision-makers to make informed curriculum and instructional choices and to propagate best practices.
A free webinar, “Introducing 95 Literacy Intervention System,” will be held on Tuesday, December 5 and Wednesday, December 6 at 6:30 p.m. CT. 95 Percent Group’s Chief Academic Officer Laura Stewart and Vice President of Digital Platforms Susan Adelmann will explore the challenges of efficient intervention management, corresponding best practices and how 95 Literacy Intervention System can make reading development easier for students, teachers and administrators.
