How Does Rally Reader Help Students Learn?

When a student reads aloud in Rally Reader, the Kindle-like interface underlines each word to be read. The underline advances in real time, from one word to the next, until a student skips a word or makes an error. Rally Reader indicates the skipped or misread word by underscoring it with a dashed line. Students can opt to read the word again or have Rally read the error word to them. Then the dashed line disappears, and Rally Reader resumes underlining the next word to be read. Rally Reader tracks uncorrected errors as "Trip Words" on the Dashboard for future practice.

Once the student is finished with a reading session, the student can tap the 'Dashboard' button on the bottom navigation bar to review their progress. The Dashboard displays all key statistics and any badges that the reader may have collected along the way, providing motivation for the next day’s reading session.
