As in previous years, the Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence judges evaluated a variety of nominated products in three categories—software, hardware and enterprise –and selected those products that are improving the way educators work and students learn.

It recently received a “Strong” rating from Evidence for ESSA, one of the most visible organizations evaluating the strength of research in the K-12 market. Core5 was designed to help substantially reduce students’ risk for reading failure and supports educators in providing differentiated literacy instruction through explicit, systematic, personalized learning in six areas of reading instruction, targeting skill gaps as they emerge, and providing teachers with the data and student-specific resources they need for individual or small-group instruction.
