Sylvan’s Individualized Reading program uses SylvanSync technology to engage students in increasingly challenging learning activities that are presented on an iPad. Individualized Reading begins with the results from a STAR Reading assessment and the Student Outlook Survey.
The STAR test provides a measure of a student’s academic mastery level, and the Student Outlook Survey assesses each student’s academic mindset and motivation.
The SylvanSync technology uses the STAR results and other student-specific information to create a unique learning plan for each student. The technology then ensures that a tutor has just the right content to address each student’s immediate skill needs during a lesson
The results of the Outlook Survey guide the personalization of instruction and motivation, and as a result, students move efficiently and effectively through the Reading program.
Students periodically take additional STAR assessments to measure progress and to determine if additional adjustments are needed for their individual learning plans.
The program content is aligned to state, college and career-readiness standards, and is designed to be used by Sylvan tutors to:
- Teach skills directly to each student
- Give students critical opportunities for guided and independent practice
- Evaluate each student’s level of mastery
