  • Enables early intervention to improve results
  • Easy to follow each individual pupil’s reading journey

Better readers do better in school and in life

Uppsala municipality discovered a correlation between reading skills and grades in secondary school. When schools started to work on reading skills in all subjects, the pupils’ grades went up. Pupils went from reading silently in class, to reading aloud with their peers, having conversations about texts they read, and increasing the focus on concept learning. They also focused more on decoding skills and fluency practice. This produced immediate results.
  • Insights about pupils’ reading are easy to find and understand, allowing all teachers to work systematically with reading
  • Enabling teachers to work with reading in all subjects has an effect on pupils’ grades
  • Good readers have a better chance of success in school and life
