Completing the Cold Timing Step

The Cold Timing step enables students to see how many words they read correctly in one minute on a new story. This step sets a baseline for the story, so the student can see improvement after practicing.

By default, a teacher must be present for the Cold Timing step. During this step, especially in the first few stories, teachers check to see if each student's placement is appropriate and coach students to accurately identify their errors. To log in and oversee a Cold Timing, the teacher clicks the Conduct Cold Timing button in the header of the Wordtastic page.

Once students can identify their errors with reasonable accuracy, their teacher can set a story option to allow their students to complete this step independently.

If the teacher is required to conduct the cold timing, the student remains on the Cold Timing/Wordtastic step until the teacher logs in.
