Progress and Error Reports

See your students’ progress and achievements – anytime

Teachers have access to a powerful online data analysis and reporting tool in the Fast Forword and Reading assistant programs. It enables you to monitor individual and class performance for all your students working with the LearnFast programs. It provides clear, action-orientated information in specific language, reading and cognitive areas.


Individual Student Reports
    

These reports show daily and weekly gains in each exercise, overall completion, and alert flags
to let you know that the student needs additional instruction in an exercise.

allows you to tailor your intervention and support strategies to each
student’s particular needs.

Reading Progress Indicator

You can assess the 4 core reading skills for your whole class in just 30 minutes

While many schools invest in technology to improve students’ readings skills, few have the tools to quickly and easily assess students throughout the school year to accurately gauge their progress.

To help schools better evaluate student gains, Reading Progress Indicator (RPI) is a web enabled, computerized tool for rapidly evaluating the effects of the Fast ForWord and Reading Assistant programs on groups of students. It can also be used as a tool to benchmark students’ reading skills.

With Reading Progress Indicator you gain the ability to:

  • Quickly assess your students’ four key skill areas:
    • Phonological Awareness
    • Decoding
    • Vocabulary
    • Comprehension
  • Automatically Score Assessments and report results to parents and teachers
  • Assess Accurate Progress Information that correlates to nationally recognised, normed assessments – including the Woodcock-Johnson Test of Achievement, Third Edition
  • More precisely assess student performance with shorter, more frequent assessments
  • Increase teacher and student success
  • Give teachers the insights they need to teach better
  • Improve Results.

It takes just 20-40 minutes to test your whole class, grade or school and includes detailed reports.

So much to gain with Reading Progress Indicator

  • Ease-of-use with computerised and automated scoring
  • Complete range with four grade level assessments covering K to 12.
