Reading Assistant

Welcome to Reading Assistant

Reading Assistant focuses on fluency and comprehension. Fluent readers are able to read with expression, proper phrasing, and few errors in order to promote understanding. It’s not about reading fast. Reading Assistant measures this by comparing the words correct per minute (WCPM) to a fluency goal, specific to each selection. Comprehension, or how well a student understands the material read, is measured by the quiz of literal and inferential questions at the end of every selection.

Use An Appropriate Headset

Because Reading Assistant uses speech recognition technology to make sure your child is reading accurately, it is important to use compatible headset equipment.
