Student test scores from St. Mary Parish School District have steadily increased after Fast ForWord and Reading Assistant implementation, surpassing the state average score on the LEAP.
A study conducted in Western Australia using a randomized controlled trial design showed that students who used the Fast ForWord products made significantly greater language and literacy gains than students who did not use the Fast ForWord products.
Students were selected from grades one through eight to participate in this longitudinal study on the effects of using the Fast ForWord Reading software in Clarke County School District in Georgia. It was determined that 40% of the non-proficient students reached CRCT reading proficiency in one year with the use of the Fast ForWord Reading software.
In four years, the percent of fourth graders in the district performing at or above Basic on the initial LEAP ELA test increased impressively from 53% to 78%, starting out far below the state average and then exceeding it.
MAP results for 98 middle school students who used Fast ForWord products in Westfield, IN, showed, on average, statistically significant gains in their language arts, math, and reading skills.
