Successmaker teaches literacy skills that coincide with Common Core standards for reading and the literacy guidelines published by the National Institute for Literacy. The math skills included in the program are based on standards set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and also conform to Common Core standards.
Reading skills for kindergarten through fifth grade include phonological awareness, phonics, fluency and vocabulary. Beginning in grade six, the activities included place a larger emphasis on spelling and grammar. The program also includes comprehension activities that test students' understanding of the course material.
The Successmaker math program covers basic concepts such as number sense, operations and patterns, before progressing to more advanced topics such as probability, geometry, measurement and algebra. Once the student masters a group of skills, the program automatically assesses the student’s skill level and introduces new, higher-level concepts.
