Students take ownership of their learning

“With Reading Progress students have taken ownership of their own learning, they love the fact that they can go into Reading Progress to see their own errors and click on their mistakes and listen to the word correctly. They come back a week later letting me know the words they have learned in Reading Progress!”

Angela Milversted, Elementary Instructional Coach, Chino Valley Unified School District
