Free Reading App Teaches Early Readers

8/1/2014 12:00:00 AM

SAS Reading Records, a new free mobile app, lets students practice reading skills in or out of the classroom and allows teachers to monitor results from anywhere.

The app records the student’s voice as he reads. To gauge comprehension, the student is also recorded retelling the story in his own words and responding to quiz questions, referring to the text as necessary. After submitting the recordings, the student receives teacher feedback and grades via the student dashboard.

Currently available via iOS and the web, SAS Reading Records includes fiction and non-fiction passages, rated for reading difficulty with a Lexile measure. Each passage comes with illustrations, a comprehension quiz with both multiple-choice and open-ended questions, and a prompt asking students to retell what they’ve just read. Users can also create their own passages and comprehension quizzes.
