About the Speaker
In 2000, technologist Richard Capone and renowned reading expert, Dr. Richard McCallum, of UC Berkeley California founded Let’s Go Learn, Inc. (LGL) with an initial vision to determine why students struggled in reading and how to better inform teachers on how to support student learning.
Shortly after its inception, Let’s Go Learn received a grant from the US Department of Education to compare its reading assessment product stand-alone assessment system with one-on-one assessments offered by highly-trained specialists in the CalReads program. This study provided statistical proof that Let’s Go Learn’s online assessments do indeed work as designed; automating the assessment process and producing expert-level reading profiles in a scalable manner that leads to effective data-driven instruction.
Over the last two decades, Let’s Go Learn has evolved to include diagnostic math assessments, adaptive math and reading instruction, and leadership training services to its users. Let’s Go Learn’s products have been statistically validated for reliability and are aligned with Common Core and state standards.
