How do my students earn game coins?
Answer: Students earn game coins with each activity they pass or when a teacher reviews the students submitted work and awards coins. These coins can be redeemed in our Rewards page. Keep in mind teachers/parents can customize the Rewards page settings and have the option to turn the page off completely, set to “Weekends Only” mode or limited the amount of daily play.
Can I add book quizzes?
If we do not have a book quiz you can create one. All book quizzes are reviewed by our book quiz team before going live.
