MONITOR RESULTS

School Administrators can sort and filter results at the teacher, class, and student level to gauge students’ literacy growth based on a myriad of custom criteria, broken down by skill levels such as claim, evidence, or analysis, or by demographics and teacher criteria, such as IEP students, ELL students, first year teachers, or teacher improvement plans.

GROUPING

School Administrators can create custom groups of students in order to assign targeted texts and assignments and easily track literacy progress.

EMBED MEDIA AND READING STRATEGIES

Rosen-LightSail has expanded upon our previous reading strategies by allowing educators to share thoughts directly with individual students, color-code annotations based on literacy skills, teach coding strategies, embed media, and hide text within the eReader. School administrators can use these tools to customize students’ learning and monitor teacher use of the tools as well.

HIDE TEXT

School Administrators can hide text in order to control the content students see or support teachers with teaching different literacy skills such as prediction.
