Built from the Illinois Grade Level Expectations for the PARCC Tests

Brainchild’s programs follow the model curricula and grade-specific scopes and sequences recently published by the Illinois State Board of Education. Brainchild has served schools for 20 years with programs for standards mastery and RTI for at-risk students. All programs are available on the web, tablets, and the highly effective Study Buddy electronic tutor.

Illinois Standards Mastery

Core Concepts allows schools to get real-time information on students’ mastery of the standards. It provides the instruction students and teachers need to address gaps and weak areas. Continuous progress monitoring is provided for individual students, classrooms, and schools.

Personalized learning paths are created automatically. Students watch a teaching segment on each standard, receive guided practice with feedback, and take a 10-question test on that standard to track progress.

RTI for At-Risk Students

Mechanics is a basic skills program in English and Spanish for students who perform far below grade level. They build confidence and become active learners as they start low, experience success, and work their way up.

Mobile Learning

Study Buddy is the perfect device for parental involvement and after school programs. It´s mobile learning without complication, as no wi-fi, and no operating system updates are ever needed.
A low-cost, dependable alternative to tablets, Study Buddy is popular in Title I, SWD, and Migrant programs.
