Timberlane Reports Achieve3000 Mid-Year Data

The Timberlane Regional School District is pleased to report on the mid-year analysis of student engagement using instructional tool Achieve3000. In just a short time Timberlane students have demonstrated great gains in advancing student literacy skills.

Our secondary students in grades 6-12 have achieved an average Lexile reading level gain of 17 from September to December, and students in grades 3-5 achieved an average Lexile gain of 37 at the elementary level.

The Lexile Framework is a scientific approach that measures text difficulty and reader ability. Achieve3000 provides ongoing monitoring of student Lexile levels which is extremely helpful in matching readers to appropriate levels of text for optimal growth. These increases in Lexile levels put Timberlane students closer to College and Career Readiness benchmarks.

The percentage of students at the secondary level who MET or EXCEEDED College and Career Readiness benchmarks increased at the secondary level from 31% in September to 36% in December.  At the elementary level, the percentage of students in grades 3-5 increased from 19% in September to 29% in December.

“Gains like these prove that the students and staff are focused on continuous improvement and increased levels of achievement,” says Director of Data, Assessment and Accountability Christi Michaud, “Achieve3000 works to support our efforts to bring rigor, support, evaluation, and accountability to the forefront of our educational system.”

Superintendent Dr. Earl Metzler is very proud of the work of both students and staff in utilizing Achieve3000 and notes, “This exceptional instructional tool has rooted itself into the climate and culture of Timberlane with the results driving outstanding student achievement.”
