QuotEd Reading Comprehension is designed to develop users’ ability to analyze, understand, and interpret texts. When launching QuotEd Reading Comprehension, users can select to answer the Question of the Day, take a quiz, or answer specific questions. In each case, users are presented with a short reading passage, followed by a multiple-choice question. Users respond to the question by selecting the correct answer. Users are given two chances to select the correct answer. If they do not select the correct answer, QuotEd Reading Comprehension shows them the correct answer and provides an explanation for why that particular answer is correct. If users do select the correct answer, QuotEd Reading Comprehension still presents them with an explanation of why the answer they selected is correct. QuotEd Reading Comprehension also lets users “star” favorite questions, which automatically loads them into a “Favorite Questions” menu on its home screen.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can begin class by projecting the “Question of the Day” to students and having them answer it independently. Next, teachers can lead a classroom discussion about why students may have selected different answers. Finally, teachers can take a class poll about the correct answer and select it. The class will then see if they answered the question correctly, and teachers can facilitate another class discussion about the app’s logic as to why its answer is correct.
  2. Teachers can develop students’ reading-comprehension strategies, so they will be able to answer the questions in this app correctly. Then, teachers can evaluate their students’ understanding and use of these comprehension strategies by having them take the quizzes preloaded into this app.
  3. After becoming familiar with this app, teachers can have students read a common text. Next, teachers can have students create multiple-choice questions and correct-answer explanations that model this app’s question-and-answer format. Teachers can then have students swap their questions with a classmate. At this point, students will be responsible for answering their classmate’s questions. This strategy will increase students’ comprehension of the text and use of text-based evidence as they compose and answer quality, text-based questions.
  4. Teachers can have students take a quiz independently. While taking the quiz, students can be required to star each question they answered incorrectly, which will allow the app to automatically load the question into the “Favorite Question” feature on the home screen. After all students have taken a quiz, teachers can put students in small groups to review the question(s) they missed.
