The National Center on Intensive Intervention Adds Classworks® Evidence-Based Reading Intervention to Academic Interventions Tools Chart

Classworks NCII-Validated Offerings Now Include Screening, Progress Monitoring, and Intervention

Classworks®, an award-winning special education and tiered intervention platform, is validated by the National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII) as an evidence-based reading intervention. The best-in-class program is listed on the Academic Intervention Tools Chart and joins Classworks Universal Screener and Progress Monitoring in the company’s highly rated, NCII-validated offerings.

“We are excited to see Classworks Reading Intervention added to our portfolio of NCII-validated resources. For 20 years, districts across the country have used Classworks individualized interventions as an essential component of their DBI processes with tremendous results,” says Melissa Sinunu, Classworks president and chief operating officer. “The recent focus on literacy across the country makes it more important than ever for districts to have access to evidence-based, impactful reading resources. We are proud that Classworks meets NCII’s rigorous technical standards for inclusion.”

NCII is a nationally recognized organization whose mission is to “support the implementation of intensive intervention for students with severe and persistent learning and social, emotional, or behavioral needs using data-based individualization (DBI).” For the Academic Intervention Tool review, NCII’s Technical Review Committee examined study quality and design, psychometric reliability of study measures, and outcome measures, among other qualifications. Classworks Reading Intervention received convincing and partially convincing evidence in the categories of Study Design, Participants, and Broader Measures.

“Douglas County Schools has used Classworks as part of its tiered intervention process since 2019. Knowing that a respected organization like NCII lists Classworks as an evidence-based resource reiterates that we made the right decision to make this high-quality tool available to our students. It’s so important that our teachers have the peace of mind and confidence that the programs they are using are valid, reliable, and effective. Kudos to Classworks for making the list,” says Dr. Kacia Thompson, director of extended learning and MTSS, Douglas County Schools, GA, and president of The Student Support Team Association for Georgia Educators (SSTAGE).
