LeapFrog SchoolHouse has announced LeapTrack Reading Pro, a research-based program designed to deliver engaging, targeted reading intervention for struggling readers in grades 3-6. The program provides intensive, individualized, technology-based instruction in reading, writing, and various content areas, with interactive Quantum LeapPad personal learning tools serving as "tutors" both in school and outside of the classroom, according to the announcement.
The system's framework includes an initial placement test to set students on a personalized learning path; system-generated alerts to signal required intervention at appropriate levels; and ongoing formative assessment that provides information about student progress. Reading Pro provides student reports suited for self-directed learning and for monitoring one's own progress; additional progress reports and achievement alerts allow educators to strategically adjust or supplement instruction as needed.
LeapTrack Reading Pro is available for shipment in June. For more information, visit http://www.leaptrack.com/readingpro.
