With Reading Assistant Plus students receive individualized reading coaching every time they use the software, making the most of each instructional minute.
Reading Assistant Plus is the only reading 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. Reading Assistant Plus delivers the following:
- Help When Students Need It: Patented technology provides real-time corrective feedback via speech recognition, enabling students to self-correct as they are reading aloud without any judgement
- Improves both silent reading and oral reading skills: students are first of all presented with stories at their current reading level. As their reading improves more challenging stories are presented
- 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: The Reading Assistant Plus program on the MySciLEARNTMplatform makes the software easy to access at home
