Boost Lectura Growth Reporting

Boost Lectura customers will see growth information in the Boost Lectura and Biliteracy dashboards when using Boost. They will be able to use this as a guide to how students are growing and progressing in their reading development throughout the year. Please note that because two scores are needed in order to show a student’s growth over time, literacy growth data will appear as early as October 2024.

Noteworthy features

PD Library

You’ll find plenty of professional development (PD) resources in the new PD Library to ensure your Boost Reading and Boost Lectura implementation runs smoothly. The PD Library can be accessed by selecting the Programs & Apps menu in the top navigation bar when logged into Boost Reading or Boost Lectura.

Embedded benchmark assessments

As a reminder, Boost Reading now assesses students’ overall text reading proficiency level and provides detailed reporting. Leveraging powerful voice recognition technology, the Boost Reading Benchmark Assessment will be administered once during each benchmark period—beginning of year, middle of year, and end of year. The measure places students (and re-places them mid-year) on their personalized path along Boost Reading’s adaptive skill map. It also provides a key insight for educators to use in better identifying areas for student improvement.

The Boost Reading Teacher Dashboard reflects the benchmark assessment data side-by-side with growth and risk data so educators can easily check in on students’ benchmark assessment data and monthly performance! Learn more in your Teacher Guide.

Please note that if your school has mCLASS®, students will be placed in Boost Reading with their updated mCLASS assessment score or the Automatic Placement Tool.
