Read&Write was assessed for its ability to close the achievement gap for the diverse range of learners at Plymouth-Canton Community Schools in Michigan, USA. 

Plymouth-Canton Community Schools is the fourth largest district in Michigan, with 18,000 students spread across 14 elementary schools, 5 middle schools and 4 high schools. Dedicated to providing learning opportunities that are accessible and effective for all students, incorporating Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles as a key component to address academic barriers and empower all students. With a goal of closing the achievement gap for IEP, ELL and students who don’t receive support but who may be struggling, the district introduced Read&Write. 

An impact study was then conducted by the Assistive Technology team to measure the impact on learner achievement and closing the gap for their low growth, low achievement students. This was measured by comparing the district’s scores in the NWEA’s MAP reading assessment, before and after Read&Write was introduced, over the course of two years.
