Go Paperless with the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Record App

The Fountas & Pinnell Reading Record App is an efficient alternative to taking a reading record on paper. The app accurately analyzes reading and accuracy rate, self-correction ratio, and fluency and comprehension scores to reveal students’ progress, and the results sync wirelessly to the Online Data Management System.

With the release of Fountas & Pinnell Classroom Guided Reading Collection and Benchmark Assessment System, 3rd edition, the app has been updated to include the new texts and to reflect the changes made to the Recording Forms. (You can read more about the Recording Form changes here.) The 1st and 2nd edition app will still support assessments for the Benchmark Assessment Systems 1 and 2 (BAS), Sistema de evaluacion de la lectura (SEL) and all seven Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) systems.

In the video below, watch how the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Record App provides greater convenience for iPad® users taking assessments.
