Progress in Reading Assessment PiRA Digital Iteractive (Network) by Colin McCarty, Kate Ruttle

PiRA Digital is available in two versions - Basic (supplied on CD-ROM) and Interactive (activated online after you have installed the Basic version). Both versions are networkable and use the same core functionality and the same database. PiRA Digital Basic is for use in conjunction with the pencil-and-paper tests - to generate instant, accurate test score conversions and immediate reports, while also holding all of your PiRA performance data from term to term. PiRA Digital Interactive does all this, and more! Crucially, it allows all of the PiRA tests to be taken independently on-screen, fully automating the scoring and diagnostic profiling. Having first purchased and installed PiRA Digital Basic, the Interactive upgrade is activated online, with pricing linked to school size (total number of pupils on roll) and discounts for smaller schools. Note: The Interactive version is licensed for two years from the date of first activating the Interactive features. View a demo and find out more at Priced by school size (number of pupils on roll.)
