Introducing the 95 Percent Group Products and Resources App!

We are excited to announce that on August 3rd, 95 Percent Group ARALOCintroduced a faster, more user-friendly app for delivering its online products and resources, including print-on-demand ancillary materials and video playlists. Also included are our online-only products such as the Phonics Lesson Library™ Online Edition and our Phonics andPhonological Awareness Screener for Intervention™. In case you are getting ready for school to open and need to print 95 Percent Group documents, we wanted to let you know that connecting to the new system requires each registered user to take a few short activation steps.  New users should create an account and register products as usual.  On PC’s (and soon on mobile devices) the new icon will look like the one at top right.  On MAC’s the icon will be different, like the orange Araloc icon at right.

The new system is accessible through the 95 Percent Group client login (on our website homepage in the upper right-hand corner as well as directly on, and will also be accessible by each device’s App icons on the “desktop” (slightly different on MAC’s).  Some materials are only accessible on the client login.  Complete instructions are available after logging on to our client login.  If you have any difficulties, please contact us at
