Quindew is successful with kids because it provides layers of engagement. Students are pushed to work hard and are rewarded for their hard work. When students achieve their goals, they earn Quindew Currency, they collect reading badges for doing great things, and they personalize their reading experience. Kids enjoy Quindew because Quindew was made for them.

Students can earn badges for answering 3 questions correctly in a row. If they continue the streak, they earn more badges. They are all working toward a gold crown which is a perfect score.
- Weekly Challenges
Each week, students are challenged to improve or grow by doing 1% better than the week before. If they meet their challenge, they are rewarded with blue diamonds--Quindew's game currency.
