HOW IT WORKS

Stackup + Reading

Stackup is a smart monitoring tool that measures and rewards students’ online reading on anything they read on the internet. Stackup helps students use the internet, discover passions, explore their interests, and READ MORE.

The Stackup Chrome Extension also calculates the reading level and category of every webpage! It can also read web pages aloud to students.

Stackup is helping K-12 schools around the nation reward students for reading and learning online without constant quizzing while giving educators the ability to understand their learners on a new level.

This National Challenge brings classrooms together from all grades to do one thing – READ. Stackup will do the rest. Students can read anything across the web as long as it is in 1 of 41 categories.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Get Your Teacher Account

Teachers, sign up here to create your free Stackup account. Follow the directions to add your class and join the National Challenge.

HOW IT WORKS

2. Get Your Students Stacking

Students can sign up here, or go to Stackup.net and click “Sign Up”. They will be prompted to enter your class code or will be joined automatically if Google Classroom is used. Then make sure your students install the Stackup Chrome Extension.

Note: Students must have the Stackup Chrome Extension to collect their reading time!

HOW IT WORKS

3. Read. Read. Read.

Read anywhere across the web that interests you most. The only rule is it must be in one of the 41 categories listed in the Challenge. Use the Stackup Library to help you find the most interesting articles. To keep things fair across different class sizes, the ranking will be based on the classes with the highest reading time average.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Stackup beneficial to schools and districts that are already using online reading programs?
The Stackup Library is curating open sourced reading content by reading level, subject and category. Features of Stackup can easily help schools determine whether programs and apps are being utilized by providing metrics around usage, engagement, and different frequencies of time.
How can Stackup measure and track online usage?
Stackup captures online engagement for students at an individual student level, grade/class level, whole school level, and district level. This means that Stackup can measure what students read, how long they read, and their reading level on anything they read or access on the internet.
How does Stackup work?
Stackup is using a patent-pending artificial intelligent technology that detects real reading and engagement with high accuracy. The result is quantification of all online reading & learning, without constant quizzing, testing, and surveying to benchmark progress and usage.
What technology does Stackup work with best?
Stackup works best on Chromebooks, but it works on any device that runs the full Chrome browser. Stackup is currently not compatible for iOS and Android products.
What is your privacy policy and is Stackup secure?
Stackup is completely secure. It is also COPPA and FERPA compliant. Data is encrypted via SSL/TLS and ISO27001 evaluated. Stackup has also voluntarily agreed to be a part of the Student Privacy Pledge. Access Stackup’s full Privacy Policy here.
How long does it take to set up and deploy Stackup?
Stackup is easy to set up and quick to deploy. School districts can deploy it to thousands of devices in a matter of seconds through the Google Admin panel.
How is Stackup helping students acquire digital citizenship skills?
Working with Google & Common Sense Media, Stackup notifies students if they visit a website or article that is known to be misleading, fabricated, or deceptive. Instead of blocking the site, the notification asks students questions so they can further evaluate the content themselves.
How much does Stackup cost?
Stackup is a free tool for students, so they can get credit and showcase all of their online learning. For school or district pricing information, please inquire here.
