Kurzweil Educational Systems Announces New Reporting Feature For Kurzweil 3000-firefly





NATICK, Mass., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kurzweil Educational Systems ®, a business unit of Cambium Learning Group, Inc. [NASDAQ: ABCD], a leading educational solutions and services company committed to helping all students reach their full potential by providing evidence-based solutions and services, announced today that a robust and flexible reporting feature has been added to Kurzweil 3000 ®- firefly . This reporting feature, available to any customer with a current subscription license, measures student logins and files opened—allowing educators to collect data that will be integral to their students' success.

Teachers and administrators in K-12 and post-secondary institutions will know in real time whether the literacy tools provided to support their students are being accessed and used. Early identification of students or student groups not using the literacy supports enables early intervention, such as supplemental training—ultimately leading to the academic success and retention of students.

"We are excited to offer our customers insight into how their students are using Kurzweil 3000- firefly ," said Alex Saltonstall, general manager, Kurzweil Educational Systems and IntelliTools. "The reporting feature was designed in consultation with our users to help teachers and administers quickly identify areas of particular strength and areas where support and coaching are necessary. Whether used to understand a district's use of the system broadly, or to track a specific student's progress relative to an IEP or other instructional goal, this reporting tool will help our customers achieve our shared mission—student success."

Kurzweil 3000- firefly is literacy support software that enables struggling students, including those with learning differences such as dyslexia and English Language Learners, to learn from the same content as their peers. Anchored in the principles of Universal Design for Learning, it supports the complex tasks of developing fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing, study skills, and test taking. Kurzweil 3000- firefly and the free companion iPad app provide access to any curriculum, anytime and anywhere.
