ENTERPRISE READING
INCENTIVE AND ACCOUNTABILITY PROGRAM

What would I say to my colleagues? I would tell them "I LOVE ReadNQuiz!" It's the absolute truth!! ReadNQuiz is a great tool to boost student accountability! With all the time we spend teaching Science, Math, Literacy and all the other things that are squeezed into our teacher day there is no time left to READ! When we lost our other "not to be named reading program" :) due to budget constraints I needed to find an affordable alternative. ReadNQuiz came to our rescue! At that time, I was a middle school teacher and was FINALLY getting my students to buy into independent reading because of the classroom requirements I held them to as well as the reading incentives I had in place. And then it happened, we lost our program due to district budget cutbacks. I searched high and low and found ReadNQuiz. With their 30-day trial it was a no-brainer. You get full functionality with the trial and once you try it...you will be hooked!! I am now a reading specialist at two urban elementary schools and we are now ReadNQuiz customers as well! It is easy to administer, easy to use, and the students love the quizzes! Their customer service is always very prompt, patient, and courteous. And believe me, I have sent my share of questions!! All I can say, is thank you, God bless, and keep up the amazing work!

We have been using [another program] for the past decade or more, but late last year, our desktop installation began to slowly die. I inquired about [another program] online, but as a Title 1 school, there was just no way we could possibly afford it. My classroom teachers were in a panic. We'd had [another program] for so long, they weren't sure, at first, how to function without a testing program to keep kids accountable for their reading. I spent a week or more researching other online quiz programs. I ended up choosing ReadnQuiz. I found it to offer numerous current titles at a very affordable price. My classroom teachers also love the feature that allows students to vote on the reading difficulty of each book. It helps them when informally assessing comprehension and reading level. The program is so user friendly - not just to the administrator, but to the teachers and students as well. Setting up my entire school of 400 took less than a day's time. Teachers enjoy the ability to check student progress at home in the evenings and on weekends while they are planning for lessons and conferences. As the year has gone by, I've noticed, with GREAT pleasure how well ReadnQuiz keeps up with adding new tests.

IntraData is very responsive to suggestions and has a much more personal level of involvement than the bigger programs. My school has been nothing but pleased with this program! We have every intention of being their customer for years to come!

Our school also could not afford [another program], a program that I loved and had used for years. After a great deal of time spent searching and then researching, our school chose to use ReadnQuiz. We have used it for several years now and plan on continuing to incorporate it into our Language Arts program.

Working with the people at ReadnQuiz is an unbelievable experience. I've had problems late on Saturday evening (not a surprise I was still working then, right?), and someone from ReadnQuiz has responded to my plea for help. Our school signed on with ReadnQuiz early on, but when I would contact them about my "wish list" I often got what I wanted. They were willing to listen to our suggestions and worked diligently to make sure we were satisfied.

ReadnQuiz fits nicely into our school's budget. Our students continue to benefit from the program, and more schools in our district are deciding to use the program after seeing how well it has worked at our school. I recommend ReadnQuiz without reservation.

My school has been using ReadnQuiz for five years now and I cannot find any cons with the product. We used the desktop version of [another program] for years and then when they went to online our system couldn’t afford it. We started using ReadnQuiz and we have been very happy.

The website is easy to use on the administration side and student side. If the quiz that you want is not available, you can write the quiz and submit it and it is ready for the student to use within 24 hours.

I highly recommend the product!

The actual quizzes are good. ReadnQuiz has a feature I really like. Students see quick responses after each question where they may choose to give feedback. If a girl thinks the question is too difficult, or doesn't really match the book, she can say so in a quick checkbox under the question. Very empowering.

I am starting my second year with ReadnQuiz. I recommend the program. It's a great alternative to other expensive ones that our system could no longer afford. There are lots of tests available and more are added daily. All our teachers, grades 5-8, use the program and would recommend it.

ReadnQuiz is great. They are constantly adding new quizzes. It is easier to run reports than it is in [another program].

When our middle school reading teachers needed an alternative to [another program] because of budget cuts, I researched ReadnQuiz. They decided to go for it, not holding out much hope that it would be any better/worse than what we had before. We were all pleasantly surprised -- ease of use by both students and teachers, quizzes are easier to understand and are not repeatable, and the price just can't be beat. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an alternative to [another program].

Last year was the 2nd year that my school subscribed to the ReadnQuiz program. I was very pleased with the feedback that I received from the staff and students. This was a great incentive for many reluctant readers. I had teachers that really monitored the program and I saw an increase in circulation numbers from those classes.

I teach a class called Literary Themes where each student contracts out for points based on pages read. In order to check for understanding, I give each child a test over his/her book, but this is difficult because on most days, I have 25 different novels that students are reading. Our school used to utilize [another program] for book assessment, but because of Illinois' financial woes, the school pulled the program.

Searching online one day brought me to ReadnQuiz. I read the specs and found that it was a program much like [another program] and tested students' understanding of novels they read. The program has numerous quizzes for recent novels that my high schoolers are reading, and the premise is nearly identical to [another program. We only have 120 students using the program, so their pricing worked for us.

I am very pleased with the company and the program. It tests whether my students read and understand the book, and this is exactly what I need. I absolutely love ReadnQuiz!!!

We LOVE ReadnQuiz at JME and I always tell other school folks about how great and affordable it is.

ReadnQuiz has been a lifesaver for our large (over 900 student) elementary school. With prices of other programs rising, ReadnQuiz was the perfect solution. ReadnQuiz has over 40,000 tests and offers teachers a great accountability program for their classrooms. I also love that you can submit questions for a test that they may not have. We have seen our test scores grow this year and I think that ReadnQuiz has played a part!

This year we are removing [another program] from our servers completely, and ReadnQuiz will be our exclusive reading program!

By the way, our middle school English teacher has said that the kids love ReadnQuiz, and they especially like the feedback feature in the quizzes (i.e. 'did you like this question' etc.).

Thank you. You were right. "Up and running in 30 minutes" is true. I'm so thankful for the program and so impressed with the support I've received on a Sunday. Your company is truly a lifeline.

I have found this program to be invaluable, as the most current books are usually available and students can be tested and have some accountability about having read them. The program is a community effort, easy to use and very affordable.

I'm happy to let you know that we will be purchasing ReadnQuiz as soon as I can get a P.O. tomorrow. I love your program.

Our kids seem to like it, including the fact that they get to give their input on the quality of the questions, as well as their own rating of the book, which provides that ‘social’ aspect to the program. IntraData is very responsive to suggestions and has a much more personal level of involvement than the bigger programs. They are continually improving and upgrading the capability of the program. The cost is very affordable. If every school who participates submits just a few quizzes per year, we’ll all have access to an extremely large bank of quizzes.

We dropped [another program] 4 years ago and last year began using ReadnQuiz. While we don't use it exactly like [the other program], it is very helpful in checking a student's comprehension. We use it to show accountability for independent reading. I would say the only drawback is that there isn't a student reading assessment feature.

You can quote me! We just didn't know what to do in our school. We do a lot with the South Carolina award books and to confirm students reading those books we used [another program] to test but we decided not to use it anymore and my big problem was going to be what to do with these students and the book award books and then I read about ReadnQuiz. Wow, it has been great and our students moved seamlessly into the program! Thanks for being a life saver! We are on our fourth year and are happier than ever!

I absolutely love using ReadnQuiz! Thank you so much for creating such a valuable resource for our students and teachers. We are so excited to continue using it this year!
