Yearly ProgressPro, from McGraw-Hill Digital Learning, is an online, curriculum-based measurement tool designed to raise the achievement of students in first to sixth grade. The software addresses instruction, assessment, and intervention to help elementary school students succeed on the yearly tests required by the No Child Left Behind Act.

“The need for research-based solutions proven to raise student achievement, coupled with growing accountability demands, makes it critical for teachers and administrators to instantly know where to focus instruction and where their students rank within state and national standards,” said Brad Onken, president of McGraw-Hill Digital Learning. “Yearly ProgressPro provides these data in an easy-to-use tool that continually assesses progress over the entire curriculum to ensure adequate yearly progress [AYP].”

Yearly ProgressPro works through weekly, 15-minute tests that assess the entire grade level curriculum to prevent slippage of student skill mastery. Exercises and practice sets are included to introduce or explain a given skill and provide for automatic instruction. A data management system then allows educators to track students’ strengths and weaknesses, as well as whole-class performance on specific skills or skill groupings.

Yearly ProgressPro Math is now available, and the company plans to launch Yearly ProgressPro Reading next. The math tool gives teachers more than 500 individual skills assessments aligned with state and national standards, but an additional 19,000 assessments are available.

A school license for Yearly Progress Pro costs $2,995 per year, per subject for up to 250 students and $6,995 per year, per subject for up to 1,000 students. District-level pricing is available upon request.
