Another site like Read Works?

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hello, I am looking for a site similar to ReadWorks. The questions on ReadWorks are very good and mix multiple choice with written response. However, I have used most of the 3rd and 4th grade stories that looked interesting, so now I have to find a different resource.

Any ideas?

readtheory.org is a little different, but I highly recommend it. You don't print off articles, though. It's free. You can roster your students. When the students first log in, they take a pre-test. It then places them at a reading level (so your students will all be at different levels). Each time they log in, they will get a test at that level. They read the passage and answer questions. After that test, it will adjust based on their score, either by staying at the same level, going down a level, or going up a level. In other words, it's adaptive. The data teachers get is great, too. I find the levels/questions on the harder end, but I do think it's very beneficial for students.

You might take a look at Newsela. It offers current-event articles at three different Lexile levels.

The thing I found about ReadTheory is that the students, um, actually have to try to read the article. I used it last year in a self-contained classroom for students with dyslexia and ADHD. They would skim the story and just start poking answers, and the site would assume they didn't know what they were doing, and suddenly they'd be down to a story with a 150 Lexile, which was way too simple. They really kind of yo-yoed back and forth, and I'm not sure what they got out of it. Teacherbee is right on the data; the reports are really detailed.

I use ReadWorks all the time, too, and thanks to this post I've just discovered CommonLit and Readtheory.

I also just found commonlit.org and I love it. I love it more than Readworks.

I also really like Edulastic.
