As mentioned earlier, when a student struggles, it’s vital to identify their strengths in order to provide them with the right tools to find success. uPAR (Universal Protocol for Accommodations in Reading), a cloud-based reading evaluation tool, analyzes students’ reading capacity to determine what methods work best for each student. This unique tool determines the level they can comprehend in three different situations — when they’re reading on their own, having the text read to them by a person, and using a text reader read to them. uPAR can help see where their reading strengths are and suggest some areas for improvement. uPAR can evaluate entire classrooms, freeing up time for teachers to provide one-on-one help to the students who need it.
For educators, it’s vital to encourage all students — not just those struggling with their work — to get involved with understanding their own data and setting their own goals. Armed with that critical knowledge and aided by evaluation tools like uPar, the sky’s the limit for their success.
