Webinar Video: Read Naturally Live: Checking student placement


Presented October 6, 2015 by Karen Hunter, Read Naturally Educational Consultant.

Proper placement is critical to student success. You can accelerate a student's achievement by using Read Naturally Live's built-in placement test and then checking initial placement after the student has completed the first three to six stories. By checking initial placement, you can determine if the student's initial level and goal are appropriate, or if you should adjust either the level or the goal.
