User feedback:
"I like how it highlights where the answer was in the passage when you pick your answer." - Kami Butterfield, teacher

"The selections are age appropriate and the responses to the questions are not too easy - some thought needs to go into it." - Mary Skummer, teacher

"The feature showing where the answer is located in the passage is a spot on tool since I ask my students to be able to provide this in their oral and written responses." - Harold Nelson, teacher

"Great for reading practice - I would highly recommend it."

"This app helped me in my reading. Now I have an A+. I am very happy I did this app."

Great during Summer Break!

We have had struggles with showing teachers via tests that what is being read is comprehended and understood. This app has helped her practice over Summer Break in a fun way. We will continue to use this even when school starts up again!

Nice job reading on a fifth grade level! We will keep working on even more reading passages. There are different stories in the 4th grade app and the 6th grade app too. Thanks for playing.

3-5 grade reading app

I purchased a lot of reading app for my two children's. I like the app a lot but there are a few think I would like to see improve in it update in the app. First the 5 grade reading app every time I click on to see the detail of my kids progress it crash and the app closed. Secondly I would like to see the story get little longer and more question as they read more books. Third and most important of all. My kid are very bright, because of this that why I'm writing. I don't think it good to give out the answer right away the moment they select the wrong answer because they remember and redo the test. It ok to point out the passage where the answer should be. The correct answer should be after three try or at the end of the test. Forth, they should not be able to retake the test without a password. The test should continue to the end before they can retake the whole test again or just the question they got it wrong. Fifth, the app should keep records of every time they answer the question whether it correct or wrong, this way the parent can see what question that got it wrong whether a first or second try. I would like to see the answer more lock down so the parents can really see if their kids is doing well or not because not all parent have the time to sit next to their kids and watching them. Even if we are next to them and they got the answer wrong the correct answer pop up and they knew the answer. Please think about this. Thank you.

It has been a long time since this review, but just wanted to share that there should not be any crashing when checking progress. If anyone finds a crash anywhere in the app please let us know because we will fix it. The app also saves the scores each time a student takes a test, so you can see what they got right and wrong on their first try and also their other tries. Thanks for writing to us - there are good ideas in the rest of your comment as well - we will keep this in mind as we work on new apps and future updates here.
