Experience Amira Assessment, a state-of-the-art online assessment that harnesses the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to administer an oral reading fluency assessment and screen students who may be at risk for dyslexia. Proven effective with all students, including English learners, Amira saves teachers time and automates scoring, running records, and reporting.
Based on 20+ years of research from leading universities—with a focus on speech recognition, reading science, artificial intelligence, and psychometrics—Amira effectively assesses, reports, and monitors progress.
Each time a student reads, Amira listens and learns, empowering teachers to reclaim instructional time by automating scoring, running records, reporting, and progress monitoring.
Other programs take 17 hours per whole class assessment, including administering, scoring, and analyzing. Amira takes only 6!
Amira recognizes the subtleties of dialects, speech deficits, and accents to assess without bias.
Amira puts universal dyslexia screening within reach, utilizing AI to make screening reliable and scalable.
The Assessment Reporting Dashboard provides a menu of all reports—access with just one click!
The automated Oral Reading Fluency Running Record saves time and makes sharing easy.
The Benchmark Report delivers at-a-glance benchmarking for all students.
For students with disabilities in reading, early intervention is critical to future reading success. The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) suggests that all students be screened for the risk of dyslexia. With the Amira Dyslexia Screener, you have powerful support for your early intervention efforts.
Quick and targeted assessments
Amira takes 5 to 7 minutes to administer and targets alphabetic knowledge, phonological awareness, and word reading in Grades K–3.
Alternate equivalent forms
Multiple versions of the screener are provided for each grade level, so students can be screened multiple times each year.
Screener administration and scoring, powered by AI, create a consistent protocol.
Established consistency and effectiveness
Backed by more than a decade of research for the TPRI® Early Reading Assessment, Amira has shown consistent reliability and predictive validity.
Amira practice provides students with the individual attention and patience they crave, delivered by an AI avatar that reduces instructional stress.
Amira makes individual tutoring scalable, maximizing the number of students who can receive personal attention. The AI avatar, Amira, employs more than 25 different micro–interventions backed by reading science.
Amira delivers micro-interventions in these categories: phonological awareness; decoding; sight recognition; logic, literacy knowledge, and language structures; and knowledge building.
Amira focuses on tutoring, not instruction. This keeps the teacher in control while enabling the student to benefit from personal attention.
Effective and Research-Based
Amira’s impact has been measured at three times greater than those of leading reading apps.
Amira’s actionable reporting facilitates teacher instruction and parent involvement.
Twenty years of research from Carnegie Mellon, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and Johns Hopkins University—plus more than 100 published articles—demonstrate that Amira accelerates reading mastery and performs as well as a personal tutor. It’s like having your own reading assistant!
Amira earns prizes on the global stage and continues to raise the bar across the reading assessment landscape.
