The Benchmark Universe Library iOS app offers students and teachers access to award-winning, precisely leveled titles from Benchmark Education Company in an iPad and iPhone-friendly format.

The app provides 24/7 access to your existing e-book subscription, with an option to download content for offline access.

With just one tap, your e-book is downloaded and available to you anywhere, anytime, with or without an Internet connection. For your convenience, your downloaded titles are organized into one place on the app.

The simple interface makes it easy to use for students at grade levels K–8. All titles in the subscription are available in the Cloud view, where you can search and filter to find the appropriate text.

Filters are available for:

• Letter/number level
• Lexile range
• Grade
• English/Spanish
• Content area

There are titles ranging levels A through Z, including both informational and literary texts, available in English and Spanish. Each title in your Benchmark Universe Library app includes audio read-aloud with text highlighting to extend the experience to listening comprehension.

Within the e-books you will also find support for close reading, academic/content vocabulary, comprehension, and writing, and extension activities that take learning beyond the page.

You’ll be able to find the exceptional content you’ve come to expect from Benchmark Education Company, including many of the series we have published: Reader’s Theater, Classic Tales, PRIME Science and Social Studies, Early Connections, and Early Explorers, among others. You will also find titles used in Benchmark Literacy, Benchmark Advance, and Benchmark Adelante.

Note: Benchmark Education Company’s e-books cannot be purchased via this app; it is intended for educational institutions and their students and teachers to download and view e-books they’ve purchased and licensed from Benchmark Education Company.
