“The use of the LANGUAGE! curriculum for intervention resulted in significant gains in all areas tested: word recognition, oral reading fluency, and reading comprehension.”—Klemp, R. (2005, November). LANGUAGE! program evaluation Los Angeles Unified School District. Paper presented at the 56th Annual Conference of the International Dyslexia Association, Denver, CO.
“Observed growth in relative standing for most grade levels on most reading measures suggests that these students were beginning the process of normalizing their reading skills. Typically, students whose skills are so poor would make no growth in relative standing and might even fall further behind their peers without an intensive intervention.” —Moats, L. C. (2004). Efficacy of a structured, systematic language curriculum for adolescent poor readers. Reading & Writing Quarterly, 20, 145–159. doi:10.1080/105735604902620828)
“Results showed 96 percent of students demonstrated growth in one or more areas of literacy (fluency and/or comprehension) after one year of LANGUAGE! instruction. More than half of the students who made growth in both fluency and comprehension (60 percent or 100 students) also improved on their Reading Proficiency subtest of the 2008 Ohio Achievement Test (OAT) at the middle school level or the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) at the high school level.”

After the implementation of LANGUAGE!, 33 percent of students in grades 6-8 grew one or more achievement level on the California State-ELA assessment from spring 2006 to spring 2007. A breakdown of the data by grade level shows 30 percent of students in grade 6; 44 percent of students in grade 7; and 22 percent of students in grade 8 grew one or more achievement level on the California State-ELA.
At every grade level, students enrolled in LANGUAGE! demonstrated statistically significant gains that were greater than those achieved by students statewide during the same assessment period.
