Latest Version of Flash Crashes When Using SAM
HMH was recently made aware of an issue with the latest version of Adobe Flash (v188.8.131.52) that is currently impacting the teacher experience when using SAM. While navigating in SAM, teachers may randomly receive an error message that Flash has crashed and teachers must close their browser and then login to SAM again. HMH is actively investigating a resolution, but in the meantime, HMH strongly recommends against upgrading to the latest version of Adobe Flash.

Important Notice Regarding iRead Screeners
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) recently discovered an issue with the iRead Screener that may have affected placement scores for students taking the assessment after August 22, 2016. Some students tested during this window may have been placed earlier in the Software than expected. HMH has resolved the root cause of this issue and it has been addressed in the November 21, 2016 release.
The Software includes fast-track assessments before each topic, which provide an abbreviated instructional path for students performing proficiently. Students in Grade K are most likely in need of foundational reading skills, but if you believe any of your 1st or 2nd grade students are demonstrating mastery significantly beyond their current software placement, we recommend re-screening them after November 21st. Please note that re-screening will reset student data and progress, including badges earned and any customizations made to their avatar.
For questions or additional information, please contact HMH Technical Support at 1-800-283-5974.
