Research Alignment

95 Percent Group instructional materials and processes are uniquely designed to provide targeted instruction on specific skills. The diagnostic screeners are aligned with the instructional materials and a continuum of skills  allowing teachers to begin instruction at a student's lowest skill deficit. Struggling readers are able to master simple concepts before moving onto more difficult skills.

Lessons are scaffolded to allow for gradual release of responsibility in the learning process from teacher to student. Our materials address both the knowledge-base and skill-base of learning to read in an appropriate manner that is clearly linked to research. 

This paper outlines research support for 95 Percent Group’s diagnostic screeners (PASI™ and PSI™ ) and instructional materials.

Gains Study of 95 Phonics Booster Bundle™: Summer School Edition 

                                    95 Phonics Booster Bundle TE Covers

Results Show Significant Student Outcomes

The Phonics Booster Bundle™ was introduced in the Spring of 2021 to use as both a Summer School program and a fall Tune-Up for the 2021-22 school year.  This explicit 25-day phonic program for students in grades 1-3 can be taught whole class or in small groups to address phonics skill deficits. The all-inclusive resource provides targeted structured-literacy instruction that is systematic, sequential, and cumulative.

An independent study of our Summer School program shows that is effectively closing phonics gaps. This initial report indicates that all 3 grade levels (Rising 1, Rising 2, and Rising 3) made statistically significant gains from instruction with our 95 Phonics Booster Bundle™: Summer School Edition. As indicated in the downloadable document below, the well below students improved as much as the below students on the % of correct responses on the posttest vs the pretest.

Review the report for more in-depth information: Gains Study of 95 Phonics Booster Bundle™: Summer School Edition.
