Book Monkeys Mastery

Book Monkeys Mastery Book Monkeys does not use plateau-based transitions to advance the student to the next level for the following reasons: ➤ Book Monkeys presents all categories of questions at all three levels. ➤ Level 2 increases the difficulty of the exercise by increasing the similarities between the target answer and the foils, but it does not increase the difficulty of the type of question asked. ➤ Level 3 increases the difficulty of the paragraph by increasing the number of sentences per paragraph, the sentence length, and the vocabulary level, but it does not increase the difficulty of the type of question asked. Therefore, Book Monkeys requires the student to work on the trials at Level 1 until he or she achieves 90 percent accuracy. At that point, the student is better prepared to work on the same types of questions at a higher level of difficulty. Points Awarded in Book Monkeys Book Monkeys awards points to the participant based on the following conditions ➤ Correct answers: The participant earns 12 points for each trial that is correctly completed on the first attempt. The participant earns 6 points for a trial that is correctly completed on the second attempt and 3 points for a trial that is correctly completed on the third attempt. ➤ Bonus points: After the participant completes 10 trials correctly, Book Monkeys rewards the participant’s performance with 40 bonus points. 72 | Fast ForWord Reading Level 3
