Texthelp Inc. today announced Fluency Tutor for Google, a leveled reading and assessment tool to help teachers support and assess emerging or struggling readers.
Fluency Tutor for Google allows teachers to choose from the included reading passages based on content, lexile level, or reading age and share them with students or groups of students via Google Drive. Students can practice reading and record their assigned passages at school or at home. Extra help is provided by dictionary, picture dictionary, and translation tools. Recorded passages are automatically shared back with teachers allowing them to measure progress over time.
Teachers using Google Apps for Education in their school or district can install Fluency Tutor for Google from the Chrome Web Store for free. More information can be found at www.texthelp.com/fluencytutor.
