Microsoft is adding a new feature to its video meet and collaboration platform teams that will help students improve their reading fluency. This is called reading progress, this facility will allow students to record the text to read themselves. The tool provides teachers with the ability to assess accuracy rates, misconceptions and more, according to The Verge’s report.
With this feature, teachers will be able to measure reading speed, accuracy and expression. Microsoft has been testing the facility since October with over 350 teachers, and now it is coming for free for Eurzus.
The report states that teachers will see a full dashboard that shows words and accuracy rates per minute, and they will have the ability to listen to a student for a specific word. If teachers do not want auto detection, they can simply turn it off and watch a video of a student reading and then evaluate it manually.
Driven by online work and learning amid the ongoing epidemic, Microsoft teams now have 145 million daily active users globally. About a year ago this number was doubled. The company has added more than 300 facilities to the teams in the last one year and in 2021 so far, more than 100 new capacities have been added.
