									Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents Selects
System Boosts Math and Reading Scores and Is Correlated With
State Standards and TCAP Objectives
DULUTH, GA – September 2, 2008 – Curriculum Advantage™, Inc. announced today
that the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents (TOSS) has selected
Classworks as one of the premier curriculum and remediation tools of choice for
Tennessee’s elementary, middle and high schools. TOSS leaders cited Classworks’
history of raising student test scores in math and reading and its correlation to state
standards and TCAP objectives as reasons for selecting the system.

Classworks (www.curriculumadvantage.com) gives teachers a single technology-based
source for over 10,800 learning activities and lessons that are built from 180 different
software products. Classworks is the only curriculum solution of its kind that can import
data directly from state-mandated assessment tests and then uses that data to
automatically assign individualized learning paths based on student deficiencies. The
Tennessee Edition of Classworks is correlated with the newly released Tennessee
Mathematics and English Language Arts standards.

“Classworks not only brings a variety of teaching resources to the classroom, it also
offers differentiated instruction for all learners while addressing reading and mathematics
deficiencies,” said Dr. Keith Brewer, executive director of TOSS. “We are pleased to
have an agreement with Curriculum Advantage that will bring to the attention of
educational leaders the Classworks product that is closely integrated with Tennessee’s
education goals while making it more accessible for teachers.”

“Curriculum Advantage is proud to be a partner with TOSS and pleased that Classworks
will be such an integral part of reaching the state’s goal for improved achievement in
mathematics and reading,” said Mr. Lindsey Cook, president of Curriculum Advantage.

A Tennessee Edition with import features has been created that allows teachers to import
TCAP scores with one simple step and immediately see prescribed, individualized
lessons for each student from Classworks’ vast library of 10,800 learning activities.
After completing the assigned activities, Classworks then tests the students and give
reports to the teacher to evaluate progress and prescribe additional work if necessary.

The Tennessee Edition with import features is important to helping the state reach its
goals for adequate yearly progress (AYP). Because Tennessee uses data from the TCAP
combined with achievement goals from the state standards to measure adequate yearly

progress, the Tennessee Edition of Classworks allows teachers to spend more time on
task and make significant strides to meeting AYP goals.
