How voice-enabled assessments foster oral reading fluency in young readers

About this webinar:

Although the link between reading fluency and comprehension is widely acknowledged, it’s particularly critical for struggling readers. Advancements in speech recognition offer the ability to capture the unique rhythms and patterns of young voices and to more effectively and precisely pinpoint where students are struggling, for earlier and more strategic intervention.

Behavioral Research and Teaching (BRT) at the University of Oregon recently released CBMskills, a new voice-enabled oral reading fluency assessment system powered by the SoapBox voice engine.

Watch the webinar to learn:

  • The benefits of voice-enabled oral reading fluency assessments
  • The design, development, and features of the new CBMskills tool
  • Possibilities for teachers to drive more personalized instruction and earlier intervention.
  • Why BRT chose to partner with SoapBox
