Two web-based reading programs from MindPlay may help K-12 school administrators predict now which students will pass the reading portion of Common Core State Assessments. Schools can use either the Common Core State Standards-aligned MindPlay Virtual Reading Coach® (MVRC) or RAPS® 360 to test their students’ reading performance. In a recent district predictability study in Texas using RAPS and MVRC, the programs were up to 92% accurate in predicting students’ performance on the assessments.
MindPlay’s RAPS 360, a Reading Analysis and Prescription System, is a diagnostic reading assessment program that automatically tests and diagnoses basic reading skills and weaknesses for a single student, a classroom, the entire school or school district population.
MVRC provides students with direct instruction that targets their specific and unique barriers to build accuracy and achieve fluent reading. The research-based program won a BESSIE Award this year.
