Summary of changes

  • Read Naturally Live's Data Mentor feature can now offer suggestions for all students reading the Read Naturally Live Sequenced series. Data Mentor's suggestions no longer end after checking a student's initial placement. 
    • Suggestions may occur after any story during a student's work in Read Naturally Live's Sequenced series. 
    • Data Mentor's suggestions are based on a student's performance over time. Each story's work can change the suggestions shown to a teacher at the Pass/Review step.
    • As with checking a student's initial placement, for Data Mentor to make suggestions for a student that student must:
      • perform Cold Timings with a teacher present; and
      • complete the Quiz step in each story.
  • The Data Mentor interface has been simplified. 
    • The Decline button has been removed from Data Mentor. Teachers who do not wish to act on suggestions should simply ignore them. 
    • Data mentor will always make suggestions if recent valid story data indicates a suggestion may be warranted. Previously the Decline button had caused some suggestions not to be shown.
  • Independent Placement refinement:
    • In situations where a student's placement recording indicates a microphone-related issue, Read Live now prompts the teacher to conduct placement in person, to ensure accurate placement.
