Research has shown K-D RAP to be most effective for all students in Grades 1–4.
Students have shown to improve reading scores in as little as six weeks.
Students can practice in school or at home with any compatible portable devices.
Closing the Gap
Although K-D RAP benefits all students, struggling readers who completed the program saw the most significant gains in oral reading fluency and comprehension.
Below-level students who received maintenance K-D RAP practice sessions continued to demonstrate improvements in reading scores.
Longitudinal tracking in reading shows that student improvements in reading remained beyond 2 years following their last use of K-D RAP.
The web-based program allows teachers and administrators to monitor up-to-date performance outcome measures.
Students receive custom practice profiles with tailored goals and incentives.
Administrators can track progress and access performance reports.
