Updates, Bug Fixes, and New Features
MiRead Updates, Bug Fixes, and New Features August 2020: Over the past twelve months we’ve listened to our users and our ISD support partners about their experiences in MiRead and the changes they would like to see in the system. Our development team worked over the past six months to get many of the high-priority changes made or added to the system. A few of these were applied back in the spring with most added to the live system a few weeks ago. Below is a list of new features, updates, and a bug fix. These will also be published in the new MiRead Updates Module (item #5 below) so that all users are notified of the changes that apply to their role.  

We look forward to working with our users to continue to enhance the system and do all we can to support students, teachers, and families on the road to literacy.

The ability to view raw assessment scores:
A modal was added to the assessment table that allows a user to see the actual scores as they would appear on a report as well as what learning components they map to within MiRead.
Applies to all users
Change Type: New Feature
