Imagine Language & Literacy students in California surpass national norms on state assessments
Student using Imagine Language & Literacy

A recent study of test results from a large California school district showed substantial growth in reading scores for students using Imagine Language & Literacy. 

The study, which used NWEA® MAP® scores from beginning and end of the school year assessments, found that students who used Imagine Language & Literacy for an average of almost twenty-four hours during the year surpassed national norms in all grade levels. 

In addition, the data showed that English Language Learners (ELLs) not only had similar growth to non-ELLs but showed greater growth when compared to all users of Imagine Language & Literacy in grades 3–5. 

These findings suggest that pre-K through fifth grade students who use Imagine Language & Literacy with fidelity would also score higher on reading assessments, and that ELLs may experience added benefits from using the digital educational program.
