While the Raz-Kids site focuses primarily on founding or improving literacy through e-books, students can also take comprehension quizzes to measure their retention of texts. Participants also gain points or stars based on their activities on the website that can then be used to accessorize an online avatar.
With more than 400 book titles available online, Raz-Kids provides an interactive format that allows students from kindergarten to fifth grade the opportunity to read books in a way that complements their individual reading level. Some kids choose to listen to a narration of a particular book while others may be able to read the book without aid. Students can practice reading wherever they have access to Raz-Kids.
The Raz-Kids website also facilitates teacher-student interaction. Students can access the website to complete tasks and quizzes, the results of which are recorded and available to teachers for assessment. Teachers can use the data gleaned to design instruction and achievements for individual students. The program is available on mobile devices including the iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire and Android devices.
Raz-Kids.com is a subsidiary of parent company Learning A-Z. Along with its resources for literacy, Learning A-Z also offers programs in several other areas of academic study, including science and writing.
