Discover MindPlay’s Universal Screener – comprehensive software that works. Learn why it’s such a beneficial choice when assessing student progress in phonics, vocabulary, fluency, reading comprehension, and more.

What is a Universal Screener?

A universal screener helps identify students at risk for reading difficulties. The screener allows educators to quickly and accurately assess students’ needs so they can provide targeted interventions and support.

The MindPlay Universal Screener is specifically designed for K-12 learners and their families. It measures foundational skills such as phonemic awareness, letter-sound knowledge, fluency, as well as vocabulary, and reading comprehension. With this data in hand, teachers get a comprehensive view of strengths and weaknesses to create individualized instruction plans tailored to each student’s specific needs.

Benefits of Universal Reading Screening

Universal screening can help educators identify struggling readers early, so they can intervene before it becomes too late. In addition, using a universal screener regularly throughout the school year means teachers can monitor student progress over time, making more informed decisions about learning goals.

Universal screening assessments are a powerful resource for educators, allowing them to differentiate instruction based on each student’s level of need while providing essential data that informs instructional decision-making across grade levels or even entire school districts.

Benefits include

  • Efficiently and accurately assess student performance across multiple areas
  • State-of-the-art technology that provides reliable data about student performance over time
  • Early identification of struggling readers to allow for early intervention and  individualized instruction
  • Insights into learning gaps between subgroups such as gender, race/ethnicity, socio-economic status, or language proficiency level
