ReReads are a support strategy that can improve pupils’ comprehension scores in SeeReader® (Reading lessons).
If pupils are not sure of an answer, they can click on the ReRead button to return to the part of the text that includes the answer.
A pupil can be assigned up to 5 ReReads for every 10 comprehension questions.
Pupils earn a Combo when they complete 2 Reading lessons (SeeReader®) in a row at 80%+ comprehension score.
Combos are the building blocks for pupils progression on Reading Plus® as they demonstrate that pupils are consistently reading with understanding. The key to earning Combos is using ReReads.
Whilst pupils work on Reading Plus®, make sure that you are logged on to your Educator account to look out for any Alerts from your Teacher Dashboard. A Hold Alerts will indicate that a child is locked out of the program and will not be able to read until released.
If there is a number next to the Awards tab, this indicates that a pupil has advanced to the next level. Select the Awards tab to print off and present the certificate to the pupil and to send the pupil a congratulatory message.
G-rate (wpm) is reading rate (speed) that pupils are reading at within the Guided Window. This can be viewed in the Progress Report and by drilling into a pupil’s activity page.
I-rate is the Independent reading rate (wpm). Once pupils are reading at a rate commensurate with their reading age, the G-rate and I-rate are alternated between Reading lessons (SeeReader®) text selections. This is to test if the skills learned when reading with the Guided Window have been transferred to independent reading.
Selecting Assignments in Teacher View allows you to track pupils Reading lessons (SeeReader®) comprehension scores.
Each individual bar represents a text selection in the (SeeReader®) column.
The aim is to achieve consistent 80% comprehension scores (green bars). Yellow bars indicate comprehension scores of between 70-79%, orange bars indicate comprehension scores of less than 70%.
Struggling pupils may need reminding of the ReRead function and/or the number of ReReads increasing to help increase their comprehension scores.
Please remind pupils to look out for the Power button on their dashboard. Powers are earned by completing 3 or more Reading lessons (SeeReader®) in a row at 80%+.
By selecting to use a Power, pupils can add an extra 10% (10 points) on to a Reading lesson. Powers never expire!
