The ReadBetter performance score is a composite score provided in the range of 0 – 2. The below bar illustrates the ranges of performance zones. It is typical for a childs performance score to vary widely within the 0 – 2 range. An ideal performance score should steadily meander within the range of 0.8 to 1.2. Wide variances are OK and completely acceptable.
A reader whose performance score is either in the challenge or the guide zones requires some further guidance.
A reader in the challenge zone needs to be challenged with reading books that are calibrated on the right end of the reader’s ReadBetter recommendation range as illustrated in the section about ReadBetter recommendations
A reader in the guide zone must read books that are calibrated along the left end of the reader’s ReadBetter recommendation range as illustrated below. The ReadBetter system continuously measures and monitors the childs reading proficiency and accordingly carves out the childs reading journey while at the same time providing sufficient flexibility and freedom of choice for the child to pick what to read.
