New Efficacy Research Demonstrates Curriculum Associates’ Ready® Meets Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Federal Funding Requirements
Schools can use School Improvement Funds to implement evidence-based curriculum to support student achievement
NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., June 12, 2018—A new research study titled “Ready Efficacy: Research on Ready Program Impact” demonstrates that Curriculum Associates’ Ready Mathematics and Ready Reading instruction for Grades 3–8 meets the federal funding requirements for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Given this research, Ready qualifies as a Level 3 program demonstrating “Promising Evidence,” and schools nationwide can use school improvement funding to implement the curriculum as an evidence-based program as defined by ESSA. Most importantly, research confirms that students who have access to Ready instruction outperform their peers on state summative English language arts and mathematics assessments.
