A student circles answers on a TRAC benchmark assessment. As part of the TRAC benchmark system, TRAC developed interval tests that are administered at approximately every four weeks to monitor students’ progress in developing reading skills. The Literacy Coaches and teachers use the results of these assessments to identify struggling readers and provide them with targeted practice to improve their reading skills through the reading toolkit and mLearning app.
TRAC’s reading toolkits include many games and learning materials that correspond to the national textbooks and TRAC benchmark system while also making learning fun. Students use the reading games to practice their reading skills during breaks throughout the school day.

A Literacy Coach teaches parents how to play a learning game included in TRAC’s reading toolkits. Literacy Coaches play an important role in coordinating the different components of TRAC, including parent engagement. Parents are encouraged to check out reading games and materials from the school library so that their children can practice reading at home.

The mLearning game that TRAC developed, Aan Khmer, corresponds with the national curriculum and TRAC benchmark system. It is an engaging way to help students develop their reading skills.
World Education’s TRAC program collaborated with the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport to develop reading benchmarks for the national reading curriculum in Grades 1 and 2. TRAC trains teachers in partner schools in how to use these benchmarks and assessments.
