    The quizzes are in Reading Counts. All that is necessary is for the teacher to enroll the students in Reading Counts using SAM. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community


    I forgot to tell you that you can find directions for SAM in the SAM Settings and Reports for Reading Counts! v3.x which can be found at https://www.hmhco.com/product-support/products/rc/manuals. If you have trouble understanding the directions there, please email me directly at AskDee@sbcglobal.net

    Hi Dee, thank you for the response however this is at odds with the following statement made by HMH: What happened to Reading Counts!? Reading Counts! may be accessed through the HMH Gateway. It does not share data with READ 180 Universal, Independent Reading, or HMH Teacher Central, but it can still be used as a standalone program. The quizzes used in the Independent Reading rotation of READ 180 Universal are indeed Reading Counts! quizzes, but they are unrelated to the standalone program.

    I answered for Next Generation instead of Universal. My bad. In Universal, the quizzes can be accessed from the Independent Reading area. The student clicks on the book and then clicks on the Activities folder at the bottom of the window. Quiz is one of the choices in the menu. If your students are using Reading Counts in addition to READ 180 Universal, then you will need to enroll them in Reading Counts in SAM. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
