A pioneer in K-12 education since 2000, Amplify is leading the way in next-generation curriculum and assessment. Our captivating core and supplemental programs in ELA, math, and science engage all students in rigorous learning and inspire them to think deeply, creatively, and for themselves. Our formative assessment products turn data into practical instructional support to help students at every skill level build a strong foundation in early reading and math.

Amplify is reimagining the way teachers teach and students learn. We believe high-quality instructional materials and technology can empower classroom teachers to offer more personalized instruction and accelerate the potential of individual students to become more active, engaged learners.
Our goal is to make education, and thereby the world, more equitable. We create education products that celebrate differences in life and thought as well as ideals we may hold in common. We help teachers craft rigorous learning experiences that reflect the diverse histories, cultures, and identities their students bring to the classroom. We also help teachers support their students in constructing, questioning, expanding, and strengthening knowledge of where they come from and who they are becoming. To do this, we hire and develop people with the broadest range of talents, life stories and experiences, and together we build a diverse and inclusive culture. If this resonates with you, we invite you to come and work with us!
mCLASS provides proven early literacy diagnostic and progress-monitoring assessments to comprehensively support each student's literacy development in grades K-6. Our suite of early literacy resources work together seamlessly to target skill gaps and provide the right instruction at the right time. Authored by researchers at the University of Oregon, DIBELS 8th Edition provides efficient, reliable early reading measures with advanced test design that prevents overtesting.
