CommonLit CommonLit's Impact Over the Last 10 Years

This December, CommonLit will celebrate its 10th Anniversary since its founding in 2013 

This journey has been so rewarding as teachers around the world have embraced CommonLit and brought it to their classrooms. Every day, teachers are using CommonLit to provide rigorous and high-quality literacy instruction, shown to deliver results for kids. 

To highlight the work we’ve done here at CommonLit in the past decade, here’s a roundup of some of our most eye-popping metrics of CommonLit’s First 10 Years

Over 20 million students in 195 countries have accessed CommonLit. Use of our digital tools by teachers and students has grown dramatically over the past ten years as more and more teachers trust CommonLit to provide engaging and effective lessons for their students.

Students have completed over 250 million CommonLit lessons from our digital library. CommonLit lessons can be translated into over 30 languages and are available for use on computers, mobile devices, and downloadable for off-line work.

Students have taken over 1.9 million assessments on CommonLit. Our assessments provide teachers with actionable data that helps them give students the support they need to be successful.

Last year, 72% of schools using CommonLit saw an increase in reading proficiency. Multiple studies have confirmed that increased usage of CommonLit lessons correlates to increased reading proficiency scores on end-of-year state tests.

Of the 88,000 schools that have accessed our free instructional materials in the United States, 59 percent are low-income. With just 20% of low-income students reading on grade-level, providing students with rigorous and relatable learning materials helps ensure they will have the literacy skills they need to be successful after high school. 

Here’s to the next 10 years together!
