CommonLit is designed to help teachers use research-based instructional routines in literacy. In addition, CommonLit conducts ongoing third-party research to measure the effectiveness of its tools and services in terms of raising student achievement. To date, third-party research has shown that:
- Students who complete more CommonLit assignments experience greater gains in reading performance,
- Increased CommonLit usage is associated with more students at proficient or mastery level on a state assessment,
- Students at Title I (low-income) schools experience greater gains on CommonLit,
- Students in special education classes have greater gains on CommonLit.
