  • The bar illustrates the percent correct score for the student (the percentage of correct responses out of total responses), which ranges from 0% to 100%.
  • The number at the end of the graph shows the correct responses out of the total responses (correct/total).
  • Hold your cursor over a bar to view the results in a simplified format.

Comprehension Strategy/Skill graph

When you first open the Student Comprehension report, the Strategy/Skill section is collapsed. Click the arrow to expand it and see comprehension strategy and skill results for your student.

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 strategy questions may only appear in one out of every three or four selections, which means you may need to wait for the student to read six or more selections before you'll be able to tell if the student has a problem with that strategy or skill.

The Comprehension Strategy/Skill graph illustrates the student's proficiency in using the individual comprehension strategies and skills to understand text. Students mostly practice comprehension strategies using the Think About Its in the Preview and Read on My Own activity, and comprehension skills during the Take the Quiz activity. To learn more see About Reading Assistant Plus comprehension.

  • Each bar illustrates the percent correct score for a strategy/skill (the percentage of correct responses out of total responses), which ranges from 0% to 100%.
  • The number at the end of the graph shows the correct responses out of the total responses for that strategy/skill (correct/total).
