Pathways to Literacy Growth with Educational Software - Renaissance Australia

Pathways to Literacy

A literacy growth solution to send K–12 reading growth soaring

Assessment-driven reading practice and digital access to motivate, engage, and inspire every learner

Move students more quickly toward mastery of national standards with targeted reading assessment, 24/7 access to a digital library offering as many as 6,000 books, and goal-driven, personalised reading practice with quizzes for nearly 55,000 titles.

Renaissance products, used together, provide a complete literacy growth solution that empowers educators to motivate students, measure literacy skills, and monitor progress toward state-specific learning standards. Along with access to digital books, articles, and personalised goals for every student, teachers can seamlessly tap into instructional resources that have the greatest impact on growth and achievement.

Together, Star Assessments, Accelerated Reader, and myON Reader bring you:

More choice, access, and tools to motivate

Students have more choice in what to read plus they can choose how they want to read: print, digital, online, offline. In addition, educators have more resources and tools to:

  • Model with individuals, a small group, or class
  • Create and assign projects, view activity
  • Build vocabulary and close reading skills

More reports and insights to inspire

Teachers have deep, rich, holistic insight into students’ reading practice with real-time data on student engagement. Along with rich reporting from Star Assessments and Accelerated Reader, myON reports let teachers know:

  • When students are reading
  • What and how they’re reading
  • Words they’ve looked up

More measures to track growth

At the beginning and ending of each marking period, teachers can use Renaissance Star Reading® and Renaissance Star Early Literacy® for student placement and growth measurement. Then, with the addition of myON assessments, as students work to achieve their personalised Accelerated Reader goals, teachers can:

  • Assign a growth check every 2-3 weeks
  • Intervene and remediate as necessary
  • Keep all students on track to mastery
