The program provides multiple ways to learn more about what students know and can do and how to effectively support their learning.

Gauge Your Instruction

Formative and summative assessments are built in, ensuring that the resources meet students where they are—providing instructional supports where needed and opportunities to stretch as students are ready. These assessments are used throughout the program to help you monitor the individual progress of your students and create flexible groupings.

Embedded Progress Monitoring

Teachers have a variety of tools for monitoring student progress, using data to inform grouping and drive instructional decisions. 

Assessment checkpoints include:

Lesson Cards

Provide guidance on observing children reading during teacher-led groups and applying skills during student-directed classroom practice.

Formative Assessment Cards

Used for responsive support based on small-group and independent work. 

Reading Response Journal

Provides lesson-level and unit-level skills checks as well as a beginning-of-the program screener and cumulative check at the end. 

Digital Screener and Skills Activities

Voice-enabled digital readings create data-driven pathing within the Student Digital Learning. 

Digital Text Quick-Checks

Check for understanding and drive personalized support.

Oral Reading Screener

Speech Technology

Digital assessments use speech-technology to save teachers time and access rich data to inform pathing. This oral reading screener digital test, powered by SoapBox Labs, records each child reading a short decodable text and scores the reading based on the child’s ability to read skill words in connected text. 

How Feedback is Used

Based on student performance, teachers have the data they need to identify students who need more support, ensuring the class continues along the same path to reading fluency.
