Additional Guidance for using Teams

When using Reading Progress on Teams the following considerations should be noted:

  • Use in conjunction with other reading assessments.
  • Do not use for summative assessment.
  • Listen/watch the student recordings, rather than just getting the generated data.
  • Adjust the pronunciation sensitivity settings to allow for the varying accents of our learners.
  • Only upload own passages that teachers have carefully selected for students.
  • Students will need to record in a quiet location without background noise.
