A2i helps teachers identify the reading needs of each child, providing recommendations for how to use classroom time with existing curricular materials for every child in their classroom. The web-based platform combines quick, adaptive assessments of word reading, vocabulary, and comprehension with evidence-based algorithms for grades Pre-K-3rd.
Read Charlotte has tracked the research behind A2i since 2017, and consider it the most promising, high-impact solution we’ve seen with strong evidence of improving K-3rd grade outcomes.
We are currently exploring the potential use of A2i in Pre-K classrooms. We continue to advocate for the use of A2i across Mecklenburg County. Several area schools are now using A2i in K-3rd grade classrooms: one local charter school began using it in fall 2021, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools began a pilot of it in six elementary schools in early 2022.
