Secret Sauce

When students Quindew, they are engaged in the right type of reading practice. Each Quest is designed with purposeful learning moments that teach students how to read at a deeper level in order to understand more. 

  • Survey Says 
    Predict the main idea by typing words related to the title. This activity activates the brain and gets students thinking about the ideas in a text before reading which increases comprehension.
  • Scan for Vocabulary 
    Identify unfamiliar words in a text. Quindew generates a personalized dictionary that students can use throughout the Quest. This deepens students' over all comprehension and boosts their confidence.
  • Marking 
    Pinpoint exact words, phrases, and sentences in a text. This question type uniquely challenges students and helps teachers understand what their students truly know.
  • Free Text 
    Write one or two word answers directly from the text or from Quindew's reading tutorials. This holds students more accountable to read a text more closely and to measure more accurately students' reading comprehension.
  • Second Chance Opportunities 
    Students are encouraged to try again if they miss a question. The second chance opportunity keeps the students in the game and offers supports to help students learn at the exact moment they are ready to learn.
