The Student Software provides targeted, explicit instruction and systematic practice in phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, phonics, decoding, word recognition, syntax, fluency, and morphology. Embedded Assessment Ensures Children Are Taught to Mastery The instructional design of the student Software is powered by the proven FASTT (Fluency and Automaticity through Systematic Teaching with Technology) algorithm, enabling children to master foundational reading by systematically moving information from short- to long-term memory. The FASTT algorithm leverages the power of adaptive technology to continuously monitor performance and customize the pacing, instructional load, and content for each child, ensuring instructional time is 100% optimized.
