Read the efficacy report

Before we began using 95 Percent Group’s Comprehension, Grades 3–6, many of our students had difficulty moving beyond the concrete level of comprehension. Now, they are not only actively placing colored tokens on the words that help them connect, question, predict, and form images, but they are independently employing these processes in reading-related activities throughout the day!
