Attempts Feature

updated admin panel

We are very excited to introduce the new attempts feature in FluencyRev. You now have the power to listen to multiple attempts of a child reading the same book. With your own ears, you can compare attempts to note improvement in pronunciation, timing, prosody and even stamina!

Here’s what you need to know:
  • Total attempts of books will be displayed in class reports. When you drill down into a student report you can see how many attempts a child took at each book they read.
  • Reading Journal report – this is a powerful evidence based tool for all educators. Now, you may compare the audio file of a child reading the same book on different dates. For example – William read LiJi the Serpent Slayer once on Wednesday. He then reread the same book on Friday. You can now listen with your own ears to hear his improved fluency with repeated practice on the same book! Remember – all audio files are easily downloaded so that if you need to build a case or portfolio of evidence – this feature will provide audio evidence!
