The Practice Scoring screen provides a student's Practice reading passage along with an audio recording of the student reading. Users can view the Practice Scoring screen as a Story or as a Running Record. For both view options, the passage is scored with words color-coded based on the student's interaction with the word as Correct, Incorrect, Not Read, Flagged, Low Error Word, or Last Word.

In addition to being able to view the passage and listen to the audio recording of the student reading, the Scoring Practice screen also provides the opportunity to edit the score. Once a score is edited, the score on the Progress Report will be updated.

Flagged

Flagged words/phrases indicate questionable audio and are not used to calculate WCPM or Accuracy unless they are selected to be rescored as either correct (green) or incorrect (red).

Once a flagged phrase is selected, words within the phrase must be scored and cannot be marked as Not Read nor Flagged.

When Amira reads on behalf of a student in Read with Me mode, those phrases are also flagged and un-scored.

Yellow

Low Error Word

Amira does not intervene for Low Error Words, and the Low Error Words will not impact scoring unless they are manually marked during editing/rescoring

Blue

Last Word

The Last Word is not clickable and has no impact on scoring.

Black

NOTE: If access to audio recordings is not available, contact your authorized district Amira lead to refer to the How do I configure Amira? article. If access to audio is desired, the authorized district Amira lead can complete the Configuration Survey to request audio access.
