I teach 5th/6th grade math and science, but I love finding fun books to explain science and math concepts using books that keep the students engaged. I can make sure to give them several options on their reading level to choose from and know I am meeting a majority of my students needs because they can listen to other book be read if they so choose. My students have learned so much from science graphic novels!
Read full review Pros Account Management - I like the way the system organizes the data for each account. It is easy to search and find any client we are looking for and then once within that record, it is easy to navigate to the necessary policy or screen. Task Management - once everyone was trained and on the same page, the ability to move tasks within the system from one person to the next really helps with the "passing the baton" from one team member to another. The task will come right up on the initial screen so the user knows they have something new to do. Reporting - the system drives the majority of the reporting we do as an agency and it is great when working within the system. Read full review Helps students gain comprehension by suggesting reading materials at their level. Because the program has the capacity to read to the students, they get a to hear a good role model which helps develop fluency and accuracy in their reading. It is easy to access and helps keep students on track with their reading goals. Read full review Cons Some of the questions in the applications are repetitive. The manual is not especially user-friendly - our agency is working on a new one for easier navigation. Better integration with our other software programs would be beneficial to our agency. Read full review I could never figure it out. Students levels from their STAR test did not translate into the books suggested on myON. The platform is cumbersome and inaccessible for students and teachers. I am fairly tech-savvy, but I could never navigate through and understand how myON worked. Eventually, I gave up and switched to Epic. The book selection was poor. Only the non-fiction books were interesting to my students. None of the popular titles and authors were available. It was a big disappointment and frustration for me and my students. Read full review Support Rating
I have not necessarily used support from Applied Epic directly, but have gone to my trainer who has gone to support. I am usually able to get an answer relatively quickly, so I can assume the support team is very knowledgeable and prompt with their help.

Renaissance myON is hands down the best as compared to
. I am allowed to consistently monitor my students. I am able to print reports to help evaluate student progress. I can also use these reports during parent/teacher conferences so parents and guardians can see where their student is throughout the year. They are able to see how their interests change along with how the reading level improves.
