Orchard Software, A Comprehensive AYP Solution for Your School  

Orchard for Your State is more than a correlation document. It is a state-specific solution that can be used any time in the school year to assess students’ strengths and weaknesses and remediate those weaknesses to ensure better scores on state-specific or national tests. In addition, Orchard for Your State includes Teacher’s Choice. Educators can take advantage of the state-specific tests or they can create their own assignment.
