every student succeeds Act

Fast ForWord has the most ESSA-compliant research of any reading intervention evaluated.

What Works Clearinghouse

We have 21 studies that meet WWC Evidence Standards for Adolescent Literacy, Beginning Reading and English Language Development.

Fast ForWord is supported by "strong evidence." For an intervention to be supported by strong evidence, there must be at least one well-designed and well-implemented experimental study (e.g., a randomized control trial) on the intervention. The Department of Education considers an experimental study to be “well-designed and well-implemented” if it meets What Works Clearinghouse Evidence Standards without reservations.

Fast ForWord is the only intervention with positive effects for English Learner AND Literacy Outcomes for students grades K-10 in individual, small group, and whole class settings.

The National Center on Intensive Intervention + State Reviews

The National Center on Intensive Intervention conducted a review of multiple Fast ForWord research studies and documented positive targeted and broad effect sizes for pre-reading and reading outcomes. Independent reviews by states including Iowa and Nevada concluded that Fast ForWord meets widely accepted criteria for an effective intervention and is a “high-gain” program.
