Pros: Great customization features help teachers boost students' close reading skills with text checkpoints that test comprehension.
Cons: A recommendation tool for related reading could increase personalization and engagement; adding paid features can get pricey fast.
Bottom Line: An excellent tool for in-text assessment. Maximize the platform's usefulness by uploading your own texts and setting up CCSS-aligned checkpoints.
