Scholastic Reading Counts
Reading Counts is an independent reading accountability program that measures and tracks a student’s reading progress. Students demonstrate their understanding of a book by completing a short comprehension quiz on the computer. The types of questions on a Reading Counts quiz include; recall and knowledge, author study, summarizing, cause and effect, sequencing, vocabulary, identifying information within the text, main idea and detail. Teachers may allow a student to retake the quiz if they score low and choose to reread the book. Classroom teachers distribute prizes to students based on different levels of achievement with their Reading Counts quizzes.
