What's In It For You

As a pilot educator your participation in developing an early detection screener for students who need early reading intervention is just the beginning.

  • Illuminate how students learn and make a difference for so many more

  • Connect with a community of progressive educators

  • Create a more inclusive school culture for all learners

One Educator Can Change Everything

As a participating educator, you'll help our researchers validate a new digital assessment that illuminates the unique ways your students learn.

With better data, educators like you can pinpoint learning differences — and incorporate these differences right into your day-to-day instruction for more impactful results.

It's powerful to create inclusive classrooms where struggling students learn alongside their peers. With the right solutions, you can make it even easier for teachers to understand what every learner experiences and reach each student with more targeted instruction.
