The Timberlane Regional School District is pleased to report the year-end analysis of student achievement with Achieve3000, an instructional tool aimed at advancing students’ literacy skills in grades 3-12.
The growth recognized in this most recent analysis has put Timberlane students closer to college and career readiness target levels and has placed several students well above those targets.
Secondary students in grades 6-12 achieved an average reading level gain of 35 Lexile points from September to June, and at the elementary level, students in grades 3-5 achieved an average reading gain of 92 points. Based on a national Lexile study performed by Achieve3000, 62% of Timberlane students exceeded expected growth this school year.
College and career readiness targets for reading and comprehending informational text are ambitious though Timberlane students continue to demonstrate the tenacity it takes to excel. At the secondary level, students who MET or EXCEEDED targets rose this school year from 31% in September to 41% in June. At the elementary level, the percentage of students in grades 3-5, increased from 19% in September to 37% in June.
These gains prove that the students, staff, and families of the Timberlane Regional School District understand that it takes rigor to recognize these accomplishments. We appreciate the support of Achieve3000 in helping us to work towards our literacy goals.
Timberlane students are encouraged to continue using the limited access edition of Achieve3000 through the summer months to keep their skills sharp. Parents may visit the Home Resource Site by using students’ account log-in information or may learn more by visiting www.Achieve3000.com.
“These gains in Lexile scores are impressive. We have an incredible staff dedicated to teaching and we have students who are committed to learning. These, coupled with effective educational tools like Achieve3000, strengthen and empower us as we increase rigor, accountability, evaluation and support that lead to greater student achievement.” – Dr. Earl Metzler
