Merit’s language arts and math software programs correlate to the Oklahoma Priority Academic Student Skills and can help students prepare for the Core Curriculum and End of Instruction Tests. The content and format of Merit’s programs can help students develop and strengthen their test-taking skills as well as their reading, writing and math skills.

Merit reading software has been proven -- through rigorous, scientifically based research -- to increase both student reading comprehension and standardized test scores. Merit research study findings reveal that education software is an effective tool to improve test scores and academic performance.
