Amira is a better early literacy assessment
Teachers have long assessed young readers by observing them read. The cost has been countless instructional hours lost to assessment administration and high variability in how data is collected.
Amira’s assessment uniquely combines direct observation with digital adaptation. Amira listens to students read and then creates running records, audio recordings, metrics, and reports for teachers and parents to review.
The Amira difference
Amira provides early literacy testing that doesn't feel like a test to students, consumes almost no teacher and class time, generates valid and reliable data,
and delivers consistent, predictive outcomes.
The actionable data generated by Amira informs instruction and student groupings, enabling educators to analyze their classroom from an entirely new perspective.
How Amira assessments work...
The student reads a passage out loud to a laptop or tablet and completes supplementary assessment items such as spelling, NWF, and RAN.
Within 7-9 minutes, Amira listens, records, and scores the assessment - and delivers six different reports.
Teachers and administrators can review comprehensive reporting including dyslexia risk, running records, ORF, and Amira's proprietary "AREA" Amira Reading Estimated Age score.
100% automation with 100% teacher control
Amira proctors, administers, scores, and analyzes ORF testing and automates the creation of running records. This saves teachers weeks of classroom time over the course of the school year.
Teachers can review and observe student proficiency at their leisure, and if desired, correct and override Amira’s scoring.
Aggravation free running records
Amira creates running records so that you don't have to and pairs them with audio recordings of each student's readings.
From audio records to running records, progress reporting to diagnosis tools, Amira provides better mechanisms for understanding every student's progress and ability over time, enabling teachers to understand their student's needs with unprecedented sophistication.
