During this unprecedented time, we’re here to help educators keep teaching and students keep learning. We’re updating our Free Learning Resources page every week with new activities and daily lessons for digital and offline learning, so every student can keep growing.
1:1 Reading Practice Ideal for At-Home Growth Grades K-3
Experience Amira Assessment, a state-of-the-art online assessment that harnesses the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to administer an oral reading fluency assessment and screen students who may be at risk for dyslexia. Proven effective with all students, including English learners, Amira saves teachers time and automates scoring, running records, and reporting.
Spend time instructing, not assessing
Each time a student reads, Amira listens and learns, empowering teachers to reclaim instructional time by automating scoring, running records, reporting, and progress monitoring.
Amira delivers micro-interventions in these categories: phonological awareness; decoding; sight recognition; logic, literacy knowledge, and language structures; and knowledge building.
Amira focuses on tutoring, not instruction. This keeps the teacher in control while enabling the student to benefit from personal attention.
Effective and Research-Based
Amira’s impact has been measured at three times greater than those of leading reading apps.
Amira’s actionable reporting facilitates teacher instruction and parent involvement.
Quick and targeted assessments
Amira takes 5 to 7 minutes to administer and targets alphabetic knowledge, phonological awareness, and word reading in Grades K–3.
Alternate equivalent forms
Multiple versions of the screener are provided for each grade level, so students can be screened multiple times each year.
Screener administration and scoring, powered by AI, create a consistent protocol.
Established consistency and effectiveness
Backed by more than a decade of research for the TPRI® Early Reading Assessment, Amira has shown consistent reliability and predictive validity.
Amira earns prizes on the global stage and continues to raise the bar across the reading assessment landscape.
