Reading Assessments

Diagnostic Reading Assessment

Quindew begins with a diagnostic assessment that evaluates students' reading ability during the first Season (12 Quests). After Season 1, a unique learning path is created for each student that meets them where they are as readers.

Benchmark Reading Assessments

Benchmark assessments formatively assess how students are progressing through a Season. Students take two benchmark assessments each Season, totaling 8 benchmarks each school year.

Summative Reading Assessments

At the end of each Season, students take a summative assessment. This assessment will measure students' growth during a Season. On average, students grow .5 grade levels each Season.

My kids groan when I ask them to complete tasks on other reading programs. Not Quindew. They are genuinely excited to work on Quindew lessons. They like collecting badges and earning rewards like Blue Diamonds that they can use to buy things.”

- Meera, California

My kids love it. I love it because it teaches so many soft skills like perseverance, determination, and curiosity. I also like how Quindew teaches students to read directions carefully. Very pleased!”

Why Quindew

We started with an outrageous idea. Let's stop over-testing students with tiring and dull assessments. Let's find a better way to evaluate students because assessing them on how well they can guess on multiple choice reading passages may not produce useful reading data.

What if we intentionally designed an online reading program that mimicked explicit reading instruction with predictable reading routines? And, what if this reading practice embedded authentic assessments so that students could demonstrate what they truly know while learning and practicing deep reading comprehension skills?

We are on a mission to offer a better reading experience for all students--for FREE. We are dedicated to building reading skills and confidence while evaluating true knowledge.   

Our outrageous idea is working and gaining attention. 98% of our readers are engaged to highly engaged. Students are asking for more. They are growing as readers and teachers are happy. Come be outrageous with us!
