Students and Families
Does your child use a school Site Code?
A Site Code is a unique code that Reading Plus assigns to an entire school. The Site Code is a school’s main entrance to Reading Plus. Each student at a school uses the same Site Code to open the door to Reading Plus.
If your child has forgotten the Site Code, ask your child’s Reading Plus teacher or classmates who are also using Reading Plus. Encourage your child to write it down for future reference. If you still do not know the Site Code, please reach out to the Customer Service team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-732-3758 option 1.
When your child first logs in to Reading Plus, he or she is asked to enter a Site Code. Your child’s computer or tablet will remember the Site Code the next time he or she logs in.
Does your child log in through a single sign-on link?
Your child’s school may use a single sign-on program (a page such as Clever or ClassLink that a student logs in to to access all school-related websites) to access Reading Plus. If your child has forgotten the username and password to the school’s portal, his or her Reading Plus teacher will need to provide them. For additional clarification, contact the Customer Service team at email@example.com or 1-800-732-3758 option 1.
When logging in to Reading Plus, your child will need to enter a username and password provided by a teacher or administrator.
If your child has forgotten the username and password, ask his or her Reading Plus teacher. We do not distribute student usernames and passwords from Customer Service.

The G-Rate is the rate at which the Guided Window moves across the text as a student reads. The independent rate, or I-Rate, is the student’s rate when reading without the Guided Window.
When students read text in the Reading component (SeeReader), the text is presented in either a guided format or an independent format. In the guided format, students read text with the support of the Guided Window scaffold. In the independent or non-guided format, students are in control of advancing through screens of text at their own pace.
The Guided Window is an essential, powerful feature of the program and cannot be turned off.As students increase their ability to successfully comprehend texts with greater reading efficiency, Reading Plus responds by transitioning them to more traditional reading formats. Text scaffolds are gradually removed in accordance with each student’s reading rate.This helps students sustain attention and assists them with transferring the increased efficiency they attain to all of their reading activities.
Reading Plus is designed to automatically provide your child with the instruction that is just right for him or her. It adapts itself to provide the appropriate level of challenge at all times. However, if you believe the instructional experience could be modified in a way that would better serve your child, please contact your child’s Reading Plus teacher.
This message will appear if your child has been struggling with his or her Reading lessons for an extended period of time. When this message appears, your child will need to speak with his or her Reading Plus teacher to release the Hold and make it possible to continue working in the Reading component.
Reading (SeeReader)provides students with personalized reading practice and adaptive instruction. Students self-select stories and articles that match their reading level and their interests. A reading selection is presented within either a Guided Window, which guides the reader’s eyes through lines of text, or in an independent reading format, which allows the student to advance through screens of text independently, without the assistance of the Guided Window. After reading a selection, students answer ten carefully crafted questions, designed to build essential comprehension skills. The content library spans lower-first-grade (Level Pre-A), through 12th-grade (Level L) and college level (Level M). Every student starts reading on the level that is just right for him or her, based on his or her instructional goals, and moves to increasingly challenging content as goals are met.
Vocabulary (ReadAround)is the Vocabulary component. The academic vocabulary words students learn in this component were selected through extensive analysis and research. Students engage with and master vocabulary in the Vocabulary component and then encounter those words in their Reading (SeeReader) selections. The Vocabulary component offers 12 levelsof vocabulary, corresponding to 1st grade through 12th grade.
Visual Skills (iBalance)is the part of the program that supports the development of visual and perceptual skills related to reading.The Visual Skills component includesa Flash activity in which a combination of three letters is presented at different distances from the center of the screen. The student is asked to type the letter sequence that was flashed. iBalance also includes a Scan activity in which students are asked to follow a Guided Window and press on the space bar whenever they see an open ring that looks much like the letter c.

If you are using a Content Filtering solution, Web Caching Server and/or Proxy Server in your infrastructure, we require that you Whitelist the following Domain Names:
If your filtering, proxy or caching service does not allow the use of wildcards for DNS entries, please contact our Customer Service department for further assistance.
Issues that require whitelisting may include, slow page loads, page freezing, white/blank web pages, or text only web pages. If you see any of these issues, consider temporarily disabling your content filtering, caching and/or proxy services to determine which solutions requires a whitelisting entry for Reading Plus.
If the workstations appear slow or they freeze while students are on Reading Plus, consider the following:
- Is the problem being experienced in one workstation, (and might be connected to the student’s particular usage), or is it experienced on several workstations?
- Have the students closed all other programs, such as music, video, chat, or multiple web browsers?
- Refresh the page:
- Windows: ctrl + F5
- Mac/Apple: command + R
- Reload the browser by closing and reopening it.
- Do the computers have all of the required hardware and software to run Reading Plus? Check technical requirementsfor studentsandfor educators.
Do the browsers or operating systems have an update that needs to be installed?
Yes. NComputing® or networked computing solutions do pose some unique challenges. Typically, a server needs to have at a minimum 1 processing core per every four users and 1 GB of RAM per user connected in order for Reading Plus to perform adequately. It is also important to note that these are the Technical Requirements to run the Reading Plus program. These numbers do not include any additional RAM or Processor requirements needed to run the Operating System or any other applications your students are using in addition to the Reading Plus program. It is recommended to use Windows Server rather than Windows Professional for the Operating System of the Host machine. Beyond these considerations many of the client devices used for these types of set ups are NOT recommended for games, media, or streaming. Reading Plus is a media rich interactive software which runs similarly to a game or streaming media. Any client devices used must be built for these functions to work with Reading Plus. Please consult the manufacturer of such devices to learn more.
