- Courses Section
This section includes structured courses, which you can follow independently, or in conjunction with our workbook courses, Steps to Literacy Initial and Steps to Literacy.
The placement test will place your learners at the right level and StepsWeb will monitor their progress, analysing their errors and creating individualized revision modules.
- Wordlists Section
This includes a variety of wordbanks, covering high frequency words, frequently mis-spelled words, spelling structures and rules, grammar points (incl plurals rules), word study (incl. prefixes, suffixes, root words), subject and topic vocabulary. Over 6,000 words, sentences, clues and definitions.
Wordlists also gives you the ability to create your own lists, either for classes, groups or even individual learners.
- Visual Recognition Speed Test
StepsWeb will automatically test your learner’s visual recognition speed and monitor their progress. This test measures how quickly a learner can visually recognise a word in milliseconds and can identify learners with difficulties in this area. This aspect is linked with the operation of the Visual Word Form Area of the brain, which is responsible for instant visual recognition of words (and consequently reading fluency). The test also sets the starting speed for activities within StepsWeb which practice and develop this aspect.
