SuccessMaker®: A Digital Learning Curriculum


SuccessMaker Reading

Course Overview

SuccessMaker Reading is an interactive, standards-based course designed to provide supplemental instruction and practice in essential reading for grades K through 8.

The student experience begins with Initial Placement which identifies the appropriate starting point for instruction and then moves the student seamlessly into the courseware.

Reading lessons will take learners through focused instruction and guided practice before moving into more independent activities. Learners work at their own pace, receiving additional support when threshold scores are not met and reviewing previous material to ensure retention and maintain proficiency.
