In the Read Naturally Masters Edition and Encore, we recommend that, when students get comprehension questions wrong, they should go back into the story and underline the phrase or sentence that includes or suggests the correct answer. In the Software Edition, the four multiple choice questions are automatically scored. If a student gets the question wrong, the same question is presented to the student until he or she answers it correctly.
If a student is haphazard in answering the questions, you might consider incentives for a student to answer the questions correctly on the first attempt. If a pattern of missing a particular type of question develops, you should teach the student strategies for dealing with the main idea, literal, vocabulary, or inferential questions.
If a student continues to have difficulty getting the four multiple-choice questions correct in the Software Edition, you can hold the student accountable and improve his or her comprehension by using the following procedure, which is comparable to how we recommend handling missed multiple-choice questions in the Masters Edition or Encore:
The teacher could also have the text of the passages and questions printed when the student starts a passage if the teacher anticipates that a student will have difficulty with the comprehension questions.
