Acellus Unveils Credit Recovery Learning Model

Acellus Innovatively Leverages Technology to More Effectively Reach At-Risk Students

2011-01-27
INDEPENDENCE, MO, January 27, 2011 (Press-News.org) The International Academy of Science today announced the release of the Credit Recovery model of the Acellus Learning System. The credit recovery model of Acellus uses Deficiency Diagnostic technology to provide in-depth training on the specific areas where students are lacking in understanding.

"Acellus Credit Recovery takes a revolutionary approach to helping at-risk students more effectively regain lost credits," said Dr. Maria Sanchez, President at the International Academy of Science. "By leveraging technology to focus remedial efforts on the specific gaps in each student's understanding, Acellus is helping to amplify results within credit recovery programs at schools nationwide."

Acellus Credit Recovery integrates prescriptive assessments and targeted instruction which can be effectively incorporated into multi-level prevention systems (applicable for primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention programs). Acellus uses progress monitoring to provide specific intervention depending on the student's needs, adapting to each individual level in order to maximize and increase overall student achievement.

Prescriptive assessments designed with Deficiency Diagnostic (DD) technology identify specific gaps in students' knowledge of the presented concepts. Acellus then provides Customized Personal Instruction (CPI) to the students in only those prescribed areas. The students are subsequently re-assessed to ensure that the concepts identified and addressed have been retained. If gaps still exist, the student will again be presented with the relevant concepts and then re-assessed to determine comprehension. Acellus will deliver additional versions of instruction to students when assessments show that multi-level instruction is required.

Acellus courses can be used to leverage teachers in providing targeted intervention for students classified as at-risk. The prescriptive assessments and progress monitoring used by Acellus provide teachers with instant visibility into areas where students are in need of remediation. This allows teachers to respond in a timely manner to individual student needs. The student response data also aids teachers in identifying students with learning and other disabilities.

About the International Academy of Science

Alarmed by the ever-growing reports of students placing lower and lower in International Mathematics and Science testing, researchers at the International Academy of Science have developed the powerful Acellus Learning System. Acellus has been deployed in schools nationwide, helping to prepare hundreds of thousands of students for success in math and science.
