The graph only shows results for selections completed within the date range. Each bar maps results for a comprehension strategy or skill as follows:

  • The bar maps the percent correct score for that strategy or skill (% of correct responses out of total responses)
  • The end of the bar shows the number of correct responses out of total responses (correct/total).
  • Holding your cursor over the bar shows the results in a simplified format.

Note: Because individual comprehension strategies and skills are measured across multiple selections, it may take some time before you start to see patterns emerge. For example, Retell/Summarize questions may only appear in one out of every three or four selections, which means you may need to wait for the group to read several more selections before you'll be able to tell if the student has a problem with that strategy.

Level of Thinking graph

Every prompt and question in the Reading Assistant Plus selections corresponds to a specific level of thinking. The Level of Thinking graph organizes the results for your students into four horizontal bar graphs—one for each level of thinking. To learn more see About Reading Assistant Plus comprehension.
