SuccessMaker is a computer assisted academic instructional and assessment software program for all elementary grade levels. This software automatically adjusts in response to individual student performance, tracking initial reading performance and progress over time. It is an optimal tool to use with students with disabilities or learning delays as it initiates at the students current performance level, presents concepts and strategies, and progresses only as the student succeeds with the material presented. This avoids acceleration at a pace for which the student is not prepared. With over 30 years of research, SuccessMaker content has been aligned with both national and Ohio Academic Curriculum Standards. This program is both an instructional tool and a means to gather performance data for evaluation of academically supportive components of reading. SuccessMaker activity is implemented by Center staff as a daily component for student participants of the Before/Afterschool and Summer STARS/intervention programs.
Positive Action is an effective evidence based character development program for kindergarten through grade 6 children. Positive Action promotes character development, academic achievement, and social emotional skills, and reduces disruptive and problem behavior. The program is based on the philosophy that you feel good about yourself when you think and do positive actions, and there is always a positive way to do everything. The curriculum includes six units with scripted lessons and use of group discussion, roleplaying, games, songs and activity sheets or text booklets. Positive Action is an evidence based practice rated by the U. S. Department of Education's What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) and considers the extent of evidence for Positive Action to be medium to large for behavior and academic achievement. In addition, Positive Action has met criteria for inclusion in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) Registries of Evidence Based Programs and Practices.
