Achieve 3000 Update
Once the initial Lexile level is determined, students will read articles based on their Lexile scores with the goal to be to improve their Lexile scores over the course of the year. Research has shown that for students who complete a minimum of two Achieve 3000 activities each week, the Lexile scores grow by as much as 2 levels.
After the Learn Set assessments have ended, students will begin to use Achieve 3000 to expand their literacy skills throughout the entire year. If you have any questions, please contact a teacher for more information.
