Read 180: Stuck in the Reading Zone

I have a student who can only work in the Reading Zone. No matter how well she does, she can't get into any of the other zones. Thoughts?

    I need to know which version of READ 180 you are using. Do your students use RealBooks or rBooks? That will tell me. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community

    I am using the Read 180 Enterprise Edition. We don't use the rBooks or RealBooks. My other 6 students were able to move on without a problem. I tried moving her to a new topic, but the same thing happened.

    We use Read180 NG. I can tell you that when my students get stuck in the Reading Zone, it is because they are not double-clicking on any of the words in red. If they do not, this causes them to repeatedly have to record the passage again and again without moving on. Once they do this, it should move them on to the quick checks.

    Thank you, vsoria. My student told me that she wasn't clicking on the words. She was able to move on!
