Update on Adobe Flash Browser Compatibility Issue-Upgrade Flash

A previous version of Adobe Flash (v24.0.0.221) was causing compatibility issues with browsers, which caused Student Achievement Manager and associated programs to quit unexpectedly. Adobe has released a new version of Flash (v25.0.0.127) that appears to allow it to function successfully in most current browsers, thus allowing those programs to function correctly. HMH strongly recommends that all users update to this latest version of 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.
