Key functions have been organized together to provide easier navigation within the software. This helps teachers and administrators:

  • Navigate through the streamlined pages more easily, and get up and running faster if they are new to the program.
  • Review, search for, and manage content - the updated Manage Books and Quizzes page provides users a single place to go in order to review and search for content of different types (Reading Practice, Vocabulary Practice, Literacy Skills, Other Reading), manage content visible to students, create teacher made quizzes, or import library collection information to make discovery of books easier for students.
