There are two ways in which a student would exit out of the Early Reader Skills Scaffold.
1 - Students Complete the Early Reader Skills Scaffold Sequence
Students will automatically move out of the Early Reader Skills Scaffold sequence after completing the progression of skills. Based upon the Benchmark assessment performance, students will receive the appropriate sequence of skill development based upon their observed ability from the Benchmark assessment. Therefore, students may begin the Early Reader Skills Scaffold with a different skill. However, the progression of skills is the same.
2 - Teacher Assigns Assessment
Teachers may assign students an assessment by using the Tracking Report which will move students out of the Early Reader Skills Scaffold. Once an assignment has been assigned, students will receive the assignment to complete when they next log into Amira. If the student's score after taking the assessment indicates that the student is an Early Reader, the student will receive the Early Reader Skills Scaffold sequence when next logging into Amira.
