Meeting the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Elementary Language Arts Curriculum
Accelerate Education’s elementary ELA curriculum uses a balanced literacy approach to promote student achievement in reading. Correlational efficacy studies have documented that our ELA courses are effective at improvising reading skills in young learners.
- Our Colorado study looked at in-year growth of reading skills among elementary students. The study results showed that Accelerate Education’s curriculum and instructional approaches produced statistically significant growth in reading skills in English Language Arts across all grade levels evaluated.
- Our Pennsylvania study evaluated the effectiveness of our online ELA curriculum relative to curriculum delivered in a traditional classroom setting at driving student achievement on standardized statewide assessments. The study results demonstrated that Accelerate Education’s curriculum and instructional approaches are equally effective at producing high student achievement in reading across all grade levels evaluated.
These studies, performed by an independent third party, qualify Accelerate Education’s elementary ELA curriculum at the ESSA Tier 3 level of evidence.
