(Tip:I used my iPhone to record and replay. It is cumbersome but can be done. You can use laptop or any phone you have that records voice messages will do)- Add comprehension question. The one that is used in school has comprehension questions and this way teacher knows whether they read and understood or not.

    I agree that it is a nice, basic app for reading fluency. I would like to see comp questions, also, including inference and vocabulary ones. Also, shorter passages, about 100 words, would be more useful. I think some of the passages are mis-categorized compared with similar paper and pencil reading inventories, and would be better at the next grade level up. I, took, would like the ability to record the student reading. So important for analyzing miscues, for the teacher AND the student!
