  5. Tap the Fast ForWord program assignment to open it.
  6. If the RPI graphic appears on the screen instead of a Fast ForWord graphic, the student will need to complete the RPI assessment first. Students can use their iPad to take the assessment. See RPI assessments.

  7. Tap Go (if prompted), then tap one of the available exercise graphics to open that exercise.
  8. To learn how the system determines the student's schedule each day, see Fast ForWord program protocols.

Exit iPad sessions early

Occasionally, a student may need to exit an exercise or a session before the protocol completes; for example, to take a short break. In this case, the student can use the menu to exit the exercise, and then exit the session as needed. The student should start another session that day and continue working on all available exercises until they are completed and the protocol for the day is met.

Note:Students should not use the Home button or multitasking gestures to exit an exercise. Instead, instruct students to use the Exit buttons within the app as described in this topic. The RPI mobile app provides its own Exit button at the bottom of the screen.

HTML5-based components

  1. While in an exercise, click the menu in the upper left corner.
  2. On the Menu screen, tap Exit to close the exercise.
  3. Note that the exercise timer does not pause while the menu is displayed, so the student should not take a break on the menu.

  4. Tap Exit on Today’s schedule.
  5. Tap Exit on Today’s report.
