Reading Counts!

Reading Counts! is reading program in which students can read a book of interest, whether fiction or non-fiction, and then take a short quiz to test comprehension.  If the student passes the quiz the student earns points which at many schools can then be cashed in for a prize or award.

Reading Counts Quizzes

To determine if the great book you are reading is a part of Reading Counts, simply use the Scholastic Book Expert.

The School District of Palm Beach County owns every Reading Counts Quiz available from Scholastic.  However, each school is given the choice of which interest levels to install.  So, when viewing information on the Scholastic Book Expert, please take note of the interest level of the book.  Your school's media specialist or technical support specialist should be able to tell you what interest levels are installed at the school.  It may be helpful to know that many schools post to their Edline page, a list of only the quizzes installed at their school.

DISCLAIMER: Scholastic Reading Counts! is a commercial reading motivational program. The list of Scholastic Reading Counts! Quizzes spans reading material for grades K through 12 including beginning to adult readers. Titles on this list were selected by Scholastic Inc. not by the School District. Inclusion of a title on this list does not indicate a recommendation or endorsement of the book’s content by the School District of Palm Beach County. Certain books may not be age appropriate when the student is reading at an advanced level and may not meet District criteria within SDPBC Policy 8.12. Further, the Scholastic Reading Counts! quiz list of books should not be considered an exclusive reading list from which students must select their books to read. No school classroom or library media center has all the books found on the Scholastic Reading Counts! Quiz list. District purchased library media center and supplemental classroom instructional materials, on the other hand, adhere to the selection criteria found in SDPBC Policy 8.12. View as PDF.
