Reading Assistant

Not evaluated for Primary reading

Intervention description

Reading Assistant is an online guided reading tool for improving vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and prosody. The intervention provides intensive reading practice. Pupils use the tool to read developmentally appropriate texts both silently and aloud. Reading Assistant ‘listens’ to a student as he or she reads aloud. Monitoring for signs of difficulty, the program intervenes with assistance when the pupil is challenged by a word.

Each pupil is given a fluency report telling how many words per minute were read correctly and a list of words he or she needs to practice before the next reading. The software stores audio of each reading session for review by the pupil and teacher.
