Reading Assistant - Online Guided Reading Aloud
Reading Assistant builds students’ brain fitness with intensive reading aloud practice using speech verification technology to act as a tutor, providing one-on-one guided oral reading support.
Reading Assistant is the only reading program that models the correct reading of a passage to students as they read out loud. This is one of the principles of best practice guided oral reading. Reading Assistant intervenes when the student falters and automatically scores students’ oral reading. Students can see their own progress and monitor their own improvement on more than 300 reading selections.
How Does Reading Assistant Work?
Every parent and educator knows that students benefit from extra reading aloud practice, especially when it is combined with immediate feedback and support from a teacher.
With our reading software, students receive individualised reading coaching every time they use the software,
making the most of each instructional minute.
Reading Assistant is for students who have attained basic word recognition and decoding skills and are now building vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. This includes students as young as preschoolers, all the way up to adults.
The online Reading Software delivers:
- Help When Students Need It: Reading Assistant acts as a patient, non-judgmental listener, that provides support to all students as they need it. Patented technology provides real-time corrective feedback via speech recognition, enabling students to self-correct as they are reading aloud, improving fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
- Time Savings for Teachers: Automatic calculation of words correct per minute (WCPM) and immediate access to comprehension and vocabulary reports make tracking students’ progress effortless.
- Increased Student Engagement: Reading selections for a variety of interests and reading levels, plus frequent comprehension checks, keep students motivated and focused on reading for meaning.
- Anytime, Anywhere Access: Students use Reading Assistant online which makes the software easy to implement at school or home.
- 300+texts to cater for all topics of interest: Each grade band contains highly-illustrated selections, grouped in a wide variety of genres and areas of interest. This ensures students build a body of knowledge and are exposed to vocabulary in different contexts.
Unrivaled Real-time Literacy Support
Reading Assistant is the only academic software program that “listens” to students as they read out loud, intervenes when students falter, and automatically scores students’ oral reading. No other program or e-book provides comparable real-time guidance and feedback.
