PiRA Digital (networkable) 

Progress in Reading Assessment (PiRA) is purpose-designed for standardised, term-by-term assessment of reading, from Reception to Year 6. With twenty sharply focused tests, it is ideal for tracking progress throughout the primary school.

PiRA Digital is available in two versions – Basic (supplied on CD-ROM) and Interactive (activated online after you have installed the Basic version).

PiRA Digital Basic is for use in conjunction with the pencil-and-paper PiRA 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 – meaning that you can decide whether to use on-screen or pencil-and-paper tests, in whatever combination you choose, with some or all pupils, across the whole school.

Both versions are networkable and use the same core functionality and the same database.
