Viewing Your Reading Snapshots

The Reading Snapshots page lists the Reading Snapshot images and website promotions that you have created so far to share student achievement.

Images capture student achievement at a certain time. They are not updated. Image Reading Snapshots can be created by teachers, staff, and administrators. You can share them by downloading the image and then using it in a document or website.

Website counters share the amount of reading that students have done in the current month or the current school year. They can be created by administrators only. To use them, you copy the code and provide it to your website administrator, who can then include the Reading Snapshot on your site. The website counter is updated nightly as long as you are within the time period that you selected when you created it.

Who can do this with default permissions?

District Level Administrators, District Dashboard Owners, District Staff, School Level Administrators, School Staff, Teachers
