System 44: How can I manually adjust a student's progress level on the software?

My student is progressing through the software but not making actual, long lasting gains. I want to reset his account and have him start from the beginning again. Somehow he's made it to 8.1 and is not able to decode or demonstrate fluency. How can I manually reset his placement on the software? Thanks in advance!!

  • The only way to reset the student in System 44 is to create a new System 44 login and password for the student. I believe he must first take the Reading Inventory and Phonics Inventory with the new login. Then, before the student begins System 44, you can set him to start in the series you think he should begin in SAM's SY44 NG Settings where there is a drop down series menu.


    Debbie is right that you must start the student over at the point where you want him to begin in System 44 with a new account. You can transfer the Reading Inventory scores by using the Grading Tools and entering the Reading Inventory scores previously determined by adding them as "print test" scores. You do not necessarily have to give the student the Phonics Inventory as long as you are setting the beginning point for the student. You can have him take the Phonics Inventory again, but I do not necessarily recommend it unless you believe that he has been blowing off the test. The disadvantage to starting him over with a new login is that you will lose most of the longitudinal data for the student. I'd double check the results in the System 44 data before I made this move.
