Let’s Go Learn, Inc. was founded in 2000 by Richard Capone and Dr. Richard McCallum. Its mission is to provide diagnostic testing, data, reporting, and instruction to boost student performance in reading and math. These tools are available to both schools and homes.
The company launched its flagship product, the LGL Reading Assessment (now called DORA: Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment), in December 2001. Also in 2001, Let’s Go Learn received a Department of Education grant for "Accelerating the Literacy Achievement of Students through Technology: The Design and Development of an Individualized Assessment-Driven, Internet-Based Literacy Intervention." With this grant, Let’s Go Learn compared its stand-alone assessment system with one-on-one assessments offered by highly trained specialists in the CalReads program. Significantly, the study provided statistical proof that Let’s Go Learn’s online assessments do indeed work as designed, automating the assessment process and producing reading profiles in a scalable manner that leads to data-driven instruction.
Let’s Go Learn’s product suite is research-based and developed by acknowledged experts in the field of reading. Additionally, the products have been statistically validated for reliability using conventionally accepted measures. Let’s Go Learn’s products are aligned with state standards and with the requirements of No Child Left Behind. They have been used to perform over 600,000 assessments nationwide.
