ACCOMPLISH READING® App
A Personalized Instruction System for Improving Reading Comprehension.

What does this mean? It means that the app acts as a personal tutor. Students know instantly whether or not an answer is correct.

If students happens to answer a question incorrectly, the computer “waits” until they have re-read the paragraph and tapped the correct answer.

However, if students answer correctly, they receive immediate positive reinforcement because they see the next question. This creates a feedback loop because they learn how to monitor their comprehension in order to receive positive reinforcement.

ACCOMPLISH READING® App is a short-term reading intervention program for students in Grades 3-8. Most students will be able to work independently and as they finish lessons, they will feel proud to show their results to a teacher or a parent.

Theory to Practice

Theory to Practice

Comprehension Monitoring

      • Readers are aware that information makes sense and that it is getting stored in  memory. This is an important metacognitive reading skill.

Research: “Activating Children’s Metacognitive Reading Processes.”

      • A double-blind study which compares ACCOMPLISH READING’S innovative methods to traditional reading training methods. The results showed that the ACCOMPLISH READING group did significantly better on measures of comprehension monitoring and on a standardized test of reading comprehension compared to the control group.
