Then, select the Reading Trends Dashboard tile under Quiz Usage. This dashboard is available to teachers, staff, and administrators.

The Reading Trends Dashboard tells you more about your students' reading based on Reading Practice Quizzes, Other Reading Quizzes, and Article Quizzes. You can see top and bottom results for the number of quizzes taken, quiz ratings for Reading Practice Quizzes, or percent correct among students in the classes you select. Based on your selections, you can see these results for:

  • fiction, nonfiction, or both
  • books, articles, or both
  • specific classes or students
  • specific timeframes
