About the report

Use this report to learn how well a student is meeting your implementation and achievement goals for Reading Assistant Plus by checking student performance at the selection level and the task/skill level. Students who consistently use the Reading Assistant Plus software and progress through content while maintaining a high level of performance typically gain the most benefit from the program.

For an in-depth view of a student's performance in an individual selection, see the Selection Report – Reading Assistant Plus.

Audio Recordings link

Use the Audio Recordings link in the upper right corner of the report to access the student's Audio Recordings page, where you can listen to recorded readings, review performance details, and manage the student's recording portfolio. To learn more see Student Report – Reading Assistant Plus Audio Recordings & Portfolio. If the Audio Recordings link does not appear on this report, the student does not have any recordings (the student hasn't completed any selections yet or doesn't have any saved recordings).
