Builds a strong foundation in literacy for all ages and levels
LiteracyPlanet’s reputable brand of evidence-based, curriculum-aligned content and cutting-edge digital technology has been proven to be an effective way to develop literacy skills in students.
A major research study from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) analysed scores and usage levels of students using LiteracyPlanet’s digital programmes from January 2016 to January 2018, meticulously investigating 500 million rows of data to see what is working well.
And the results speak for themselves.
PwC found LiteracyPlanet to be effective at improving grades across all levels. After just 10 LiteracyPlanet exercises PwC observed a significant improvement in student literacy.
The biggest improvement in grades was observed when students who had reached the optimal number of exercises (70 to 100). PwC determined this was the sweet spot for getting the most out of student development, without being overwhelmed by content.
Students across the board recorded a 12% improvement in grades by the time they had taken 70 exercises. The most substantial improvement was seen in students who started below year level, but all levels recorded noticeable improvement.
What this tells us
The big message we can take from this data is not just LiteracyPlanet works, but it’s versatile.
Whether you’ve got a class of high achieving Year 4s who need a challenge to complement their course work, or a student in Year 8 who could benefit from a little extra attention, LiteracyPlanet is a great way to add value and variety to help build a strong foundation in literacy for students of all levels.
