Overview

Achiever! is a standards-based, grade-specific program that provides data-driven instruction in Math, Science, and Language Arts. Districts use Achiever! for high stakes test preparation by finding and closing achievement gaps of at-risk students. Struggling learners benefit from expanded learning programs with personalized instruction on the web, tablets, and the Brainchild Study Buddy electronic tutor.

Content Development

Question items are developed by curriculum experts for each subject area who review state standards, test item specifications, and released state tests. Achiever! question items employ a concurrent reliability and validity process in which thousands of educators provide online “question feedback” to the Company for each question item to assure that the style and context of the questions are similar to that of the items on state tests.

3-Step Learning Process

Achiever employs an evidence-based pedagogy, based on 20 years of supporting higher achievement for millions of students. There is a teaching segment for each state standard, followed by guided practice with carefully crafted feedback, and a 10-question quiz to track progress with real-time reports.

PLAY LESSON teaches the concept.

  • STUDY gives questions with immediate feedback.
  • TEST records scores and tracks progress.
  • REVIEW MISTAKES lets students review and correct their mistakes

immediately at the end of the each test.

Students look forward to using the program and taking ownership of their learning.”
