New Studies Reveal Significant Increases in Student Performance with Imagine Language & Literacy

Elementary School Students Using Imagine Language & Literacy Show Higher Scores and Proficiency Levels According to Three New Studies

Scottsdale, Ariz., MAY 24, 2022 – Imagine Learning, the largest provider of digital curriculum solutions in the U.S., serving 15 million students in more than half the school districts nationwide, today announced the results of three new studies revealing that students who used Imagine Language & Literacy demonstrated significant academic gains on standardized assessments. The studies took place in schools across Idaho and Florida during the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years.

“As we continue to collaborate with districts, the results of these studies show what the future of learning can look like when the power of technology is harnessed to support educators,” said Jeff Pendleton, SVP and General Manager of Supplemental and Intervention for Imagine Learning. “Students are thriving through the use of adaptive, personalized learning solutions and we’re excited to see that Imagine Language & Literacy is helping to accelerate learning and ignite breakthroughs.”


  • English language learners (ELLs) attending 34 elementary schools in a large public school district in Florida used Imagine Language & Literacy during the 2019-20 school year. These students showed significant academic gains as measured by the WIDA ACCESS assessment. Data from the study indicated that forty percent of ELLs increased one or more proficiency levels from February 2019 to February 2020 and 14 percent of students scored Proficient in February 2020, according to Florida’s proficiency metrics.
  • In Bonneville School District in Southeastern Idaho, 213 bilingual students in Grades 1-7 using Imagine Language & Literacy scored significantly higher on the Winter 2020 WIDA ACCESS 2.0 assessment than in Winter 2019. Data from the study indicated that students who passed more lessons in Imagine Language & Literacy had higher scores.
  • In the Snake River School District in Blackfoot, Idaho, findings from the study show that after one year of Imagine Language & Literacy, Grades K-1 students demonstrated significant growth on the Renaissance Star Early Literacy and the Idaho Reading Indicator assessments. Overall, the percentage of Imagine Language & Literacy students meeting the Probable Reader classification (the highest literacy classification) on the Renaissance Star Early Literacy assessment more than doubled—from 21 percent in 2018 to 55 percent in 2019. Imagine Language & Literacy students also demonstrated impressive gains on the Idaho Reading Indicator, with the number of students scoring on grade level increasing significantly from 42 percent in 2018 to 66 percent in 2019.
