This article summarizes an experimental study that investigated the use of Renzulli Learning on oral reading fluency, reading comprehension, science achievement, and social studies achievement among 383 elementary and middle schools students. The Renzulli Learning System is an online educational learning system and profiler designed to match student interests, learning styles, and expression styles with highly challenging enrichment resources. Students were randomly assigned to use Renzulli Learning for 2-3 hours each week for 16-weeks, and those students who participated demonstrated significantly higher growth in reading comprehension, oral reading fluency, and social studies achievement than control group students who did not participate in Renzulli Learning.
