Subject: Reading
Delivery: Paper, CD-ROM, Online
Read 180 is a comprehension and vocabulary secondary program. Moves students between small groups and computer activities. Basic assessment takes 10-15 minutes tests reading level using Lexile. Assessment tests vocabulary integrated into passages to determine reading level which biases against ESL students. This program was not designed for students with decoding issues. In practice, it is hard to implement. Requires a top notch teacher to keep everything running. Scholastic has a nationwide network of trainers because of the integral need for professional development with Read 180. Customer uses Let's Go Learn's DORA assessment combined with Unique Reader and Unique Reader Secondary to provide a more complete reading intervention for multiple profiled groups of secondary students. Read 180 is a very expensive program. Requires a dedicated lab, onsite-server, and more.
