Abstract
Moby.Read is aa tablet-based speech recognition app that grade school students use to administer oral-reading fluency assessments in real-time. The app is intended to replace face-to-face oral reading assessments done by teachers, and to save time and increase the accuracy of the assessment. Through the teacher dashboard, Moby.Read will aggregate assessment results at the class and individual student level, and provide teachers detailed reports on types and frequency of errors to inform instruction. Moby.Read will be implemented in and out of classrooms to supplement oral reading instruction and improved fluency.
