According to the findings of a recent analysis conducted by Learn2Earn, creator of Whooo’s Reading online platform, elementary students read books with higher text complexity, as determined by Lexile measures, than before using the platform. 

The data were drawn from more than 2,700 students in grades one through five who had used Whooo’s Reading consistently from October 2014 through March 2015. 

After students use Whooo’s Reading to log their fiction and nonfiction books, as well as minutes spent reading,teachers can preselect a prompt for students to have the option to answer a Common Core-aligned question. The platform awards Wisdom Coins based on the amount of minutes logged and their answer to the comprehension question. Students then use those coins to “buy” virtual accessories from the platform’s Owl Store and customize the owl avatars (called Owlvatars) assigned to them on their initial registration.
