Everything you need
As a parent or family member, you can check your child’s progress by logging in to your child’s account. Log in to your child’s Reading Plus account to access his or her Dashboard. Learn more about each section of the Student Dashboard by either clicking the Families link at the top of the screen or by clicking the Help icons found throughout the Dashboard.
The first page you will see upon login displays your child’s reading rate, total number of words read, and total number of stories read. If you click the More Info link at the bottom of the page, you will see comprehensive data on your child’s progress within the program.
To verify that your child has completed his or her assigned lessons for the week in the three component programs, click the blue Lessons button at the top of the page. Here you will see checkboxes on the right side of each program bar indicating the number of assignments to be completed. Once these checkboxes are all checked off, then your child has completed all assignments for the week. Reference page two of the Home Learning Guide for Families to learn more.
Your child’s teacher can also provide further data and context on your child’s progress in the program.
Reading (SeeReader) provides students with personalized reading practice and adaptive instruction. Students self-select stories and articles that match their reading level and their interests. A reading selection is presented within either a Guided Window, which guides the reader’s eyes through lines of text, or in an independent reading format, which allows the student to advance through screens of text independently, without the assistance of the Guided Window. After reading a selection, students answer ten carefully crafted questions, designed to build essential comprehension skills. The content library spans lower-first-grade (Level Pre-A), through 12th-grade (Level L) and college level (Level M). Every student starts reading on the level that is just right for him or her, based on his or her instructional goals, and moves to increasingly challenging content as goals are met.
Vocabulary (ReadAround) is the Vocabulary component. The academic vocabulary words students learn in this component were selected through extensive analysis and research. Students engage with and master vocabulary in the Vocabulary component and then encounter those words in their Reading (SeeReader) selections. The Vocabulary component offers 12 levels of vocabulary, corresponding to 1st grade through 12th grade.
Visual Skills (iBalance) is the part of the program that supports the development of visual and perceptual skills related to reading. The Visual Skills component includes a Flash activity in which a combination of three letters is presented at different distances from the center of the screen. The student is asked to type the letter sequence that was flashed. iBalance also includes a Scan activity in which students are asked to follow a Guided Window and press on the space bar whenever they see an open ring that looks much like the letter c.
