School District Of Palm Beach County HMH Next Generation Software Support
Palm Beach County's implementation of HMH Next Generation consists of the following programs: Reading Counts!, Reading Inventory (formerly SRI), READ180, Phonics Inventory (formerly SPI), FASTT Math, Math Inventory (formerly SMI), and Student Achievement Manager (SAM).
All School District of Palm Beach County schools are licensed for Reading Counts, Reading Inventory (RI) and SAM. All middle schools, most alternative schools and a few other select schools are licensed for READ180 and Phonics Inventory. About 80 elementary sites have FASTT Math. Five schools have Math Inventory.
The Student Achievement Manager, SAM, is the learning management system for the Next Generation Suites. SAM collects and organizes performance data students generate while using the Scholastic programs. SAM allows teachers and administrators to understand and implement data-driven instruction.
Reading Inventory (RI) helps educators assess student reading levels and monitor reading progress. RI will help you identify struggling readers, plan for instruction, gauge the effectiveness of your curriculum, and demonstrate accountability. Includes RI testing dates.
Motivate readers! Reading Counts! begins with great books! Students read fiction, nonfiction, and curriculum-connected books based on their interests and Lexile® level. Students then take a computer-generated quiz to test their comprehension. Hundreds of unique quizzes can be generated for each title.
READ 180‘s adaptive, instructional software provides intensive, differentiated skills practice to motivate struggling readers. The software analyzes, monitors, tracks, and reports on student accuracy, noting not only incorrect answers, but also the types of errors made and the time of the response. According to how the student performs, the software continually adjusts instruction offering students immediate feedback.
Phonics Inventory™ is computer-based assessment that measures decoding and sight-word reading fluency in fewer than 10 minutes. Phonics Inventory is a universal screener, placement test and progress monitor.
FASTT Math software uses research-validated methods to help struggling students in grades 2 and up develop fluency with basic math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Using the FASTT system (Fluency and Automaticity through Systematic Teaching with Technology), the software assesses students and then provides a continuously adaptive instruction and practice.
Math Inventory™ (MI) is a research-based, computer-adaptive math assessment program that measures math understanding on The Quantile Framework® for Mathematics. The most powerful feature of MI is its ability to administer fast and reliable low-stakes assessment to inform instruction and make accurate placement recommendations. Aligned to the Common Core State Standards, MI helps educators forecast student achievement to those important goals.
