Teaching large numbers of students—who fall at different competency levels— English Language skills can be a challenge for educators. Often, teachers can gain efficiency by instructing every student the same way, based on their grade level. This is not, however, effective for reaching all students, as every student is at a different point in their learning progress, no matter their age or grade in school. Students need instruction tailored specifically for their individual needs, to gain academic achievement and helps them progress on their learning path.

Personalized learning that individualizes instruction in important skill areas is key to remediating struggling students, enriching on-level students, and accelerating overall student achievement. Today’s evidence-based, digital adaptive technology for the ELA curriculum evaluates student performance and assesses progress to determine whether a student is ready to advance or needs additional practice. Students are provided with material at their zone of proximal development—the just right level allowing them to progress through lessons until they reach proficiency.
