See why millions of teachers love CommonLit

CommonLit has made me more data-driven and helped me better understand student data.
Toni Scola ELA Teacher
The data and assessments are super helpful. The assessments are very much aligned to what we teach in ELA. The pre-assessment helps me know where my students are at now which helps me as far as planning and next steps.
Jessica Ruiz ELA Teacher/ELA Coach
My student's reading scores on standardized tests have improved. I believe a big reason we saw that growth was because I used CommonLit last year.
