Online Adaptive Reading Assessment

Teachers typically listen to young children read aloud individually to assess their early literacy skills, but a new online reading assessment by NWEA aims to modernize this process by having students read text aloud from a computer screen or tablet and speak into a microphone to record their voices. The new MAP Reading Fluency assessment, part of NWEA’s Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), focuses on the “learning to read” process and uses voice recognition technology to collect data on an entire class of students in about 20 minutes. The adaptive assessment also measures comprehension by asking students questions about what they are reading. Teachers can review the data on a dashboard and play back a student’s recording as many times as they want in order to better identify where the child may need help.
