Jodi Tholen, data and testing coordinator at Brooklyn Center High School in Minnesota, shares how ACCUPLACER//MyFoundationsLab helped a student graduate from high school and pursue higher education:

"The student should have graduated in 2010. His one-month participation in the ACCUPLACER//MyFoundationsLab online intervention program led to a 20 percent increase on his Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment GRAD Reading test scores, and ultimately to his graduation. I am confident that ACCUPLACER//MyFoundationsLab, which differentiated reading instruction based on the student's individual needs, was the key to the student's success."
