Reading Counts

Scholastic’s RC (Reading Counts!) is a software program that assesses students’ reading comprehension of books read independently.  After finishing a book, students log on to the computer and take a 10 question multiple choice quiz.

With our RC program, students read at their own reading level.  This reading level is determined by taking the S.R.I.  (Scholastic Reading Inventory).  Students receive a Lexile (a 3 or 4 digit number) that is their reading level.  Our school library has several thousand RC books available for students to check out.  Books from home may also have RC quizzes available.
