Assigning an ereading worksheet

What are ereading worksheets?

ereading worksheets are Flash based online quizzes about reading skills. These quizzes give students practice with a variety of reading skills such as identifying figurative language, determining the narrator’s view point, recognizing the author’s purpose, understanding text structure and more.

How can I use ereading worksheets?

Students can print the results of their ereading worksheets. Because of this, teachers can assign students to complete ereading worksheets as extra credit, class assignments, or even homework depending on computer access within the community and school. The best part is that ereading worksheets are graded for you.

But, can’t a student just print 10 copies of their results?

Not that easily. Before taking the quiz, the student is prompted to enter their name. The name they enter will then be printed on their results page. If a student wants to change the name on the results page, they will have to retake the quiz. Because the answers shuffle each time the quiz is taken, completing the quiz for other people requires work.   Students will always be able to devise methods to game the system, but ereading worksheets will make them work for it.

Cool, anything else?

Yes. At the bottom of each ereading worksheet is a text field containing code. If you click on the text box and cut and paste the code into an html field on your blog or web page, the ereading worksheet should display on your page without ads. This is a great way to enhance your classroom blog or website. What, you don’t have a classroom blog? Get one free.  And don’t forget to check out the ereading worksheets.

    Love your worksheets…I would like to use your online tests in class. Students are not able to print out their results at school, so how will I be able to view their results?

    • Wow,
      that post was written in 2011.

      A lot has changed since then.
      I really ought to update that post.

      Now you can “turn in” the online tests in 3 ways:

      1. Print (which you said that you can’t do)
      2. Save (saves a PDF file of scores and responses to the drive of your choice, even a USB drive)
      3. Email (emails the same PDF results and responses document to whatever email that is entered).

      I am currently working on a backend system to store responses and basically
      do everything that I ever dreamed could be done,
      but it will take around a year to finish that.

      Emailing is probably the best way to submit them now.

      Just tell your students to be careful when entering your email,
      perhaps send a copy to themselves too.

      While the script that I wrote checks to see that the email
      format is write (characters@character.tld)

      If they enter the wrong email, you will never receive the results page,
      they will see a success message, and their responses will not be saved.

      I hope that helps and thanks for checking out the site,
      and reminding me to update this now outdated post.

      Best wishes,

      Morton
