Setup a Reading Challenge
Challenges are a great way to keep track of how students are doing. Create a Challenge in a specific category like Science, or at a specific website like Nasa.gov – Add a time goal and put a due date on it. Check out the video to learn how.
Build a Profile
Having Students build their Profile is the best way to stay updated on how a student is progressing over a long period of time (Think longer than a challenge). Once a student has built their Profile, they can share their unique Profile URL with Teachers & Parents. Note: The only way to access a Profile is with this unique URL. Lets take a look at how to build a Profile.
