ELA: Read Theory - Online Adaptive Reading Comprehension Tool

When I was in Todd Chappa's third grade classroom yesterday, he was excited to share this new tool he has been using with his students to help them practice taking adaptive online reading comprehension assessments.  

Read Theory is an online tool that once students are loaded into the program, they can take online adaptive reading comprehension tests.  The tests adjust up if the student is doing well, or down if the student is struggling with the content.  The program then provides the teacher with the ability to track how the students are progressing.

Cost: Free
Device: Internet enabled device
Use in the classroom: Great for getting students reading for online testing with quizzes that are short and sweet.
