Cover Story (view full-size image): Literacy skills are critical for future success, yet an alarming number of students lack proficient reading skills according to standardized assessments. Focus on standardized assessment scores may lead teachers to focus on test preparation rather than the transferable skills that students need to be successful readers. In this article, we describe the StairStepper adaptive literacy game that is part of the Interactive Strategy Training for Active Reading and Thinking (iSTART) intelligent tutoring system. Results of this study indicate that the StairStepper game is a promising solution to fill this gap in instruction by providing a fun and engaging way for students to practice essential literacy skills.
