What is Literably?
Literably is a reading assessment for K-8 students that identifies A-Z reading levels, diagnoses skill gaps, screens students for reading difficulties, and monitors progress. Our web and iOS apps record a running record of students reading out loud into a device, along with several comprehension questions and a short retell.
How does it work?
Pick levels and readings: Literably supports grade levels and guided reading levels. Choose readings or let Literably choose them for you.
Assess students: Each student reads aloud to Literably. You can rotate students through a station or test the whole class at once!
Get hassle-free data: For each reading, Literably generates an audio recording, a running record, words correct per minute, percentage accuracy, and a Common Core comprehension score. From this data, it recommends a guided reading level.
Share data with others: Print or email to share with students, parents and administrators.
What are the benefits of Literably?
For teachers: Monitoring students’ reading is important, but administering oral reading assessments takes hours of class time. Literably takes care of the administration, scoring and tracking, so teachers can spend more time responding to student needs.
For students: Matching students with appropriately challenging texts is extremely important for reading growth and engagement. An overly difficult text evades comprehension, while an unchallenging text offers little opportunity to master new words and concepts. Literably makes it easy to match students with the books that are right for them.
For parents: Parents want to know how their children are doing. Literably makes it easy for teachers to engage parents by sharing meaningful examples of student growth.
