Progress monitoring is a key reason why the Read Naturally Strategy is so successful. When students can easily monitor their own progress, they’re motivated to stay focused on the task at hand in order to continue improving. But the self-monitoring of progress by students is only half of the progress-monitoring story in any Read Naturally classroom. Read Naturally teachers must also monitor their students’ progress in order to make the necessary adjustments to help accelerate growth. For this reason, Read Naturally programs include detailed reports and graphs that make tracking growth a breeze for teachers.

Student progress reports are integral to all of our programs, but our most popular and sophisticated program, Read Naturally Live, features the most extensive reporting capabilities. What’s more, the reports in Read Naturally Live are automatically generated, eliminating the need for teachers to spend time entering data. So what are these reports, and how can they help you?

The links below allow you to download a sample of each report in Read Naturally Live. The descriptions that follow provide quick information about how teachers can use the report data to make important adjustments and improvements.

Read Naturally Live reports include:

  • Students At-a-Glance Report
    This report includes a student-by-student summary of results for Read Naturally Live stories passed. Teachers use this report to quickly identify students who may not be making adequate progress in fluency and comprehension and therefore may require adjustments in their programs or additional instruction. This report provides trend data so that teachers can easily compare the average scores from the first three stories to the average scores from the last three stories.
  • Student Level Summary Report
    This is a table summarizing results for each story a student has passed at a given Read Naturally Live level, including cold- and hot-timing results, number of practices, quiz results, and more. Stories are listed in order of completion, so teachers can compare the student's scores for early and recent stories, looking for a trend of improvement over time.
  • Student Fluency Graph
    This bar chart displays a student's cold- and hot-timing scores for all stories passed in a specified series and level. Teachers use this report to track the student's reading fluency in a series/level in order to make instructional decisions that optimize the student's progress.
  • Student Comprehension Graph
    This graph shows which quiz questions a student answered correctly or incorrectly on the first try for each story in a specified level. Quiz results are reported by question type and story. This report allows teachers to assess comprehension and quickly note whether a certain type of question (e.g., the vocabulary question) is challenging for the student and provide additional instruction as necessary.
  • Student Retell Graph
    This graph shows the number of words a student used to retell each completed story on the first try and whether or not the student met the teacher's expectations on the first try. This report indicates how well the student is able to communicate his/her comprehension of the story and allows teachers to assess whether it is necessary to modify the retell step and/or provide additional comprehension instruction.
  • Word List Graph
    This graph in the Phonics Series shows how long it took a student to read the word list on the most recent attempt for each story the student completed in a specified level. This report shows how well the student is learning the featured phonics patterns and helps teachers identify patterns that may require additional instruction.
  • Story Details Report
    This report provides a student's detailed results for a specific Read Naturally Live story, so that teachers can see how the student performed on that story. The student's written prediction and retell are included in this report, as well as other information such as all words-correct-per-minute, individual quiz question scores, and more.​
