Scholastic Reading Pro
Harris Academy Riverside understands the value of reading. Reading ability is an important factor in the ability to learn. Students who read the most do the best. Reading ability can be improved and the academy will work hard in the early years of each student’s academic career to improve reading ability. Whatever a student’s reading ability, it can be improved immeasurably with a huge impact on future academic success.
Harris Academy Riverside has invested in an internet-based software called Scholastic Reading Pro. This software should be worked on independently by students and can be accessed at home now.
- Delivers a reading test to each student to assess reading ability
- Publishes the score (Lexile Score) and monitors it, republishing the score at regular intervals
- Suggests reading materials (books, short stories and articles) which are likely to improve the student’s reading ability based on each student’s
- interests and
- current reading ability
- Produces quizzes on each novel, short story or article read in order to reassess progress in reading ability

On September 11th we should like each student to bring in his or her Lexile Score which requires each student to have undertaken the Reading Pro test.
Ideally, students will read some of the suggested reading materials and taken one or two quizzes to increase their Lexile Scores and thereby their reading ability.
