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 and aligned to what we teach in ELA. The pre-assessment helps me know where my students are at, which helps me with 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.
