Please pardon the cross-posting. I’m forwarding the message below because it seems like Reader Zone could have applications in public libraries. – Thanks, Jen

Subject: [oasl-all] Reader Zone: Digital Tool to Track Children's Reading Progress

Recently I learned about Reader Zone<https://readerzone.com/>, and I thought I’d share about<https://readerzone.com/about/> it since it could be a helpful tool for classroom teachers, librarians, parents, and others to track students’ or children’s reading progress. It can be used to track everything from year-long reading goals in a classroom to progress during a read-a-thon. The FAQ<https://readerzone.com/faqs/> even suggests that the system can be used to track other things like musical instrument practice. One account can have unlimited reading programs, reading groups, and participants. The online tool and app<https://readerzone.com/app/> are free.
This is from the How It Works<https://readerzone.com/works/> page:

Reader Zone has been built so that reading groups of any size can reliably measure reading progress.

1.      Fill out a simple online form to create your account and reading program(s).

2.      Set up reading groups within your reading program(s). Set reading goals for each group. For example, if you have an entire elementary school, you can create one reading program for the entire school and separate reading groups for each grade level, classroom, etc. each with its own separate reading goal.

3.      Select a unique reading code for your program.

Reach Out

4.      Email that code to your reading community asking them to download the app from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and register their readers.

5.      Your participants begin logging their reading.


6.      You can see the reading progress of every participant in your reading programs on your administrative dashboard.

7.      The reading program, and its participants, can be edited anytime.

8.      Download and use the reading data as you see fit.
