Summary of new features

  • Student Access: Students are now assigned access to Read Naturally Live–Español using a checkbox on the Student Details page of the Staff Module. This is similar to the method of assigning Word Warm-ups Live or One Minute Reader Live access to students. 
  • Student login experience: Students with access to the Spanish-language application can now choose to work in either Read Naturally Live or Read Naturally Live–Español after logging in. When students have access to the Spanish application they will see a dedicated tile for the stand-alone application. The tile displays their current story and step in Read Naturally- Live Español.
  • Management of student assignments and Story Options: To manage the separate Level, Goal, and Story Options available with the new application, a new Read Naturally Live–Español page has been added to the Read Live Staff Module. This page works similarly to the one that manages the English-language application. As with the English-language application, these settings can also be accessed using the Teacher menu in the Student Module.
  • Reporting: Reports related to the Read Naturally Live–Español application are accessed separately from those for English-language levels. Under the Reports page of the Staff Module, a new Read Naturally Live–Español Reports page includes all of the available reports based on Spanish stories. These reports are based on existing ones in Read Naturally Live, but display data from student performance in the Español stories only.
  • Waiting List and Distance Learning: Students waiting for a teacher in their current Read Naturally Live–Español story appear on the Waiting List page in the Read Live Staff Module. Information about each student's current story is also available from the Read Naturally Live–Español page.
