All articles for the Reading Acceleration Program and Recovery Acceleration Program will use the terminology "Group," "User," and "Subject" though if you are an academic user, the terminology within the app will be "Class," "Instructor," and "Student." In most cases the functionality will be the same, and if there is any difference it will be outlined within the article itself
- When first adding a subject you will be presented with a check box "Require King-Devick Test." This box is checked by default. If the box is not checked you will be asked to select a starting speed based on numbers per minute (NPM).
- If you would like to select the speed manually (generally having the subject take a KD test is recommended) you can use the following chart for a guide:
- If you leave "require King-Devick Test" checked you will be prompted to either enter a KD Result from an existing test or to run a KD Test within RAP.
- In order to record a test you will need to enter the test speed (seconds), the number of errors committed, the number of cards run (subjects 10 and under may use 2 cards rather than 3 if the test is proving difficult), the test date, the testers initials, and any additional comments. Press confirm to save the results and you will be presented with data indicating the subjects performance based on age.
- On the following page you will see the subject's starting speed has been selected and the gauge will be set. If the subject does not have a pre-existing K-D Result then the King-Devick test will be run through and the subject will be given a starting speed based on their performance.
