"Scholastic, a leading innovator in U.S. education, can now support      teachers worldwide to raise student achievement with these resources," said Shane Armstrong, President, Scholastic International. "Countries all across the globe are recognizing that students need to reach ever higher standards to succeed in today's global economy and our goal is to facilitate that growth and learning for all students. These programs provide teachers with tools and data to enable them to make informed decisions about and plan their instruction and their students' progress, based on best practices in teaching and learning."

Scholastic Literacy Pro is a digital reading comprehension assessment program for students from age 7 through 18 that combines Scholastic Reading Inventory™ (SRI)'s computer-adaptive assessment test with the Lexile®-based independent reading program, Scholastic Reading Counts!®, that tracks student success on the books they read in and out of school. With Scholastic Literacy Pro, students' individual reading levels are determined using the LitPro Test, a computer-adaptive assessment that measures and reports on reading comprehension in Lexile® levels.  Based on each student's individual level as well as their chosen interests, Scholastic Literacy Pro provides a personalized reading list for each student that motivates them to read more and improve their performance; and enables teachers to track their progress.

Scholastic Literacy Pro provides educators with real-time data to:

  • Target instruction to meet individual and group goals.
  • Evaluate teaching programs and monitor progress.
  • Forecast growth towards national and/or international standards.

Scholastic PR1ME Mathematics is a mathematics proficiency program for grades 1 through 6, which is based on the successful instructional methods of top-performing countries in mathematics. Scholastic PR1ME Mathematics is a collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Singapore and incorporates the best practices of Singapore, Republic of Korea, and Hong Kong. These countries have consistently been top performers in international assessments such as Trends in Mathematics and Science Survey (TIMSS) and Performance in International Student Assessment (PISA).

Scholastic PR1ME Mathematics is based on a pedagogical approach and instructional design that:

  • Teaches via problem solving, helping students learn to use different strategies to arrive at their conclusions and develop confidence in approaching problems;
  • Develops metacognition and mathematical thinking;
  • Incorporates formative and summative assessment in its instructional design to help teachers guide individual students;
  • Incorporates professional learning into the curriculum framework for teachers to improve their practice; and
  • Uses technology to deliver innovative instructional content.
