Ruckus Reader evaluates reading levels
How well your child reading? Are they an emergent reader? Beginning reader? Independent reader?And how much progress is actually being made as they sit with their e-books? These questions are in the minds of many involved paretns of early-grade elementary students. Now with interactive e-books, parents can get some answers. After all, the electronic devices that these e-books run on have the potential to track the activity that's going on as the child interacts with the app.
One company that's working on using digital technology to provide parent updates on their children's reading levels is Rucus Media Group. They offer an e-reader service, by subscription, which delivers e-books on the iPad platform. The app is calld Rucus Reader. Rucus Reader books are linked to popular brands such as Disney, Crayola, My Little Pony, Transformers and SeaWorld.
The Ruckus Reader app evaluates a child's reading level and offers a library of titles at that level. Progress Snapshots are available to parents. Check out Progress Snapshot and get a breakdown of the amount of time the texts were read. Progress Reports are avaialble for an additional fee and provide more in-depth information about the child's interactions with the books and reading levels.
