Recover Learning Loss
Liftoff is an adaptive intervention program that supports instruction by targeting specific academic standards in vertical alignment for math and reading that have occurred due to learning loss and recovers those academic gaps.
Differentiated Learning for All Instructional Levels
Education Galaxy’s program Liftoff is a Math and Reading supplemental intervention that provides practice and instruction in a highly-engaging learning environment.
Liftoff recovers learning loss that has occurred by finding the students learning level through a diagnostics assessment and then students can begin to work on their own individualized learning plan.
Liftoff supports elementary and middle schools students (grades K-8).2
Support the COVID Slide All Year Long
Liftoff helps support the COVID slide all year through identifying specific instructional standards immediately so teachers can begin intervention so no instructional time is wasted.
Students can easily track their goals and progress overtime to support student accountability and academic growth.
Differentiate Instruction for Individualized Learning Needs
Liftoff motivates students to answer questions correctly and to master topics by providing both instant and long-term rewards.
- Language Support:
- We also differentiate through our English and Spanish language support. Teachers can support language learners and their families to meet their individual learning needs.
- Text To Speech:
- Teachers can also support specific learning needs through our text-to-speech support.
Data Driven Progress Monitoring
Our dynamic reports make it easy for educators to accurately progress monitor and target specific instructional areas of focus to best differentiate and support learning loss that has occurred over time. Liftoff provides teachers and interventionists with a variety of reports to help them monitor their students’ progress and assist in planning small group instruction.
NWEA MAP Integration
Liftoff also integrates with the NWEA MAP! Once students take their Beginning of the Year MAP assessment, you can import your students RIT scores into Liftoff.
Our Liftoff program will:
- Fine tune each student’s skill gaps with a focused specific diagnostic assessment tailored to each student that is reduced and targeted
- Determine each student’s level of proficiency within a set of vertically aligned topics and skills in math and reading
Google Classroom Integration
Liftoff integrates with Google Classroom!
Teachers will be able to link their class and Liftoff assignments to their Google Classroom. Students will see their Liftoff assignments in their Google Classroom, and teachers will be sent their results directly.
Aligned to State Standards
Administrators and teachers can have confidence in the practice and assessments students complete with Liftoff. All of our diagnostics, assignment options, and questioning are aligned specifically to your state standards. We ensure all of our questions are built from the ground up to prepare students for their state assessments.8
Inquiry Based Questions
Students will be challenged with a variety of question stimuli to apply their learning with our large library database of questions. Our questions are all aligned to your state standards and develop higher order thinking skills for each student. Students will apply their learning with a variety of questions such as:
Build Student Engagement
Liftoff builds student engagement through our exciting and fun Alien Ranking levels, avatars, rockets, and games! Students earn Galaxy Stars for their hard work and academic growth. These engaging rewards that students unlock through their mastery of standards are never a distraction during the learning process and encourage students to have fun while working hard.10
Build Classroom Community with Alien Arena
Alien Arena is an engaging group instruction module that encourages students to collaborate in teams to review state standards and reinforce their learning. Alien Arena is perfect for your whole class or a small group. Alien Arena includes our Alien Explanation videos so teachers can scaffold learning and clarify thinking with students in real time.11
Recover Learning Gaps in Vertical Alignment
When students complete their My Diagnostics in Liftoff, each student is provided an individualized learning plan called My Galaxies. My Galaxies supports students in math and reading to begin working on foundational standards and skills that students have not mastered in vertical alignment.12
Reinforce and Scaffold Learning with Alien Explanations
Many programs offer text based feedback that students rarely read and quickly ignore. Our revolutionary Alien Explanations provide video explanations for every single question that is specific to that question. This provides drill-down instruction to the very basic skills the students are struggling with. With our Alien Explanations, your students will quickly master concepts because their instruction is tailored to them.13
Personalized Assignments and Assessments
Liftoff supports students to reinforce their state standards with a variety of personalized assignments and assessments. Teachers can create custom differentiated practice assignments and tests to specific students or multiple classes. Students can also receive practice in assignments through video assignments, writing compositions, constructed response, and SuperSheets.
