  • Literacy Pro assesses students and readers on the same scale giving assurance that independent readers are choosing titles that are both within their reading level range and also are of interest to students.
  • The programme provides a wealth of information with comparisons to research- based, norm-referenced data – so that educators can make informed teaching decisions.
  • Literacy Pro allows the development of readers by providing texts that will challenge but not frustrate; with immediate feedback on comprehension, and recognition of success..
