Student reading levels are diagnosed when they first login, and students read the same content at their independent reading level.
As students improve, they move up reading levels. Both struggling and gifted students read accessible content that challenges them.
Adapting content takes time and inaccessible textbooks are a barrier to students reading. We're here to make teachers' lives easier.
Your students read three short articles, each followed by a quiz. This sets their initial reading level for upcoming assignments.
After reading, your students take a multiple choice quiz and their reading level adapts based on how well they do.
Students can highlight, circle, and underline text then attach their own notes for teachers to look over.
These come at the end of a quiz, right after the multiple choice section, and can be turned on or off for any assignment.
Students at lower reading levels or those who need to can listen to the article while following along as text is highlighted.
Quickly see what vocabulary words students struggled with to help you focus on reteaching troublesome concepts.
Sort articles by NGSS Performance Expectations or Cross-Cutting Concepts. You can also browse by unit or search for specific terms.
Use our gradebook to see how students improve over time or with retries. You can calculate averages on the fly as well as export all of your data.
We have print-optimized PDF versions of every article for every reading level. Symbols mark each reading level so you know who gets which version.
Easily shareable reports let you give coaches and admin digestible visual data about how your students are progressing.
Get RocketLit Science and History for use in your classroom for one month, absolutely free.
It’s a resource students have been motivated to read because the articles are interesting and well-written. It is rewarding to see that after reading the articles and taking the free response questions, they do understand the concepts.
The platform’s ease of use and intuitive design drew me in, but the differentiation piece is really the seller. I can look up a million articles on everything on my own, but the website already does it all for me.
Finding leveled reading resources with the same concepts had been a struggle, so I love how RocketLit articles are leveled for individual reading levels, but still have common examples and vocabulary we could discuss as a class.
Even my most gifted students have voiced their opinions on how challenging RocketLit is. Which, as a teacher, is something that I appreciate about the product. Many of my students are reading at the 11-12th grade level.
