Scholastic Reading Counts is an independent reading program for kindergarten through 12th grade that combines traditional reading practice with software-based assessments of a student’s reading ability. The program helps develop students’ reading skills, raises their test scores and motivates them to become better readers.
The program works by matching a student with a book that is of interest to her and a good match for her skill level. The student then reads the book and takes the corresponding quiz. SRC automatically generates a quiz that meets each student’s reading needs.
As of 2015, Scholastic has more than 55,000 titles in its library and is constantly developing new quizzes. Each year, SRC adds quizzes for more than 2,800 children’s fiction and non-fiction titles. Teachers and school administrators can go online to the Book Expert tool and view the entire listing of quizzes and their associated book titles.
