Renaissance News – Spring 2015
By Ruth Atkinson
I am very pleased to introduce the Spring 2015 edition of Renaissance News – our printed newsletter that is being sent to all of our customers this week.
The past few months have been very busy for the team at Renaissance Learning, rolling out the newly enhanced STAR Assessments and launching the seventh annual What Kids Are Reading report to name but two highlights. You can read more about the awards and report launch on page 5.
Two important pieces of independent research have been published recently by the Education Endowment Foundation (page 3) and the National Literacy Trust (page 9) proving once again the positive impact of Accelerated Reader (AR). This research proves what the nearly 4,000 schools using AR across the UK and Ireland already know – AR motivates students to read and their literacy attainment improves as a result.
