Reading Counts App

We have the parameters set in Reading Counts for students to test between 8am-3pm Monday through Friday. However, students have downloaded the Apple App at home and it is allowing students to test at all times and days. Does anyone know if there is a way to set the same parameters for the App, so that it is unavailable at the correct times?

  • I hope someone can give you a solution. My students are very creative about taking RC quizzes at home. Part of my new daily routine is to remove access to RC for all students in SAM at the end of the day and to put it back every morning. I know it is not ideal, but maybe a temporary fix until you hear about a better solution.


    I think you need to give Tech Support a call about this. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community


    Apparently, this is a "known issue" that has been reported to the development team. They are working on a fix so access is granted only during during the appropriated hours. They do not have an ETA as to when that will be implemented, unfortunately, but it is in the works. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community

    Yes, our students also want to conduct quizzes at home.

    I think that we are also needed Tech Support.


    If you needed Tech Support, I hope you called them at 1-800-283-5974. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
