Computer Reading Tests

My 12 year old granddaughter did not do well on a computer reading test. It seems like this type of testing intimidates her, and she does poorly. She is doing well in her regular reading class, so I told her parents that was a true reflection of her reading skills. However, there will be other computer reading tests in middle school, and I would like to help her gain confidence in this type of testing. Are there any websites that would give her the opportunity to practice over the summer? I will suggest to our son to also check with her teacher about helpful websites or programs. Thanks!

Newsela and thinkcerca are good ones. Newsela is free for a few months and thinkcerca is free. This is where we are headed, so it is a good idea to help her now. She will get used to reading in the computer. You are a thoughtful grandma!

Thanks mommy9298! Well, once a teacher, always a teacher. I will check out these two sites. I did run across Book Adventure for encouraging some summer reading. Are you familiar with this site? It's similar to AR in that you choose a book and then take a test. I looked at it, and it might be an additional thing to use.
