To begin the program, students to take a short diagnostic test, which consists of three reading passages followed by a related set of questions. Based on how the student answers the first set of questions, they are provided the next passage at an increased or decreased level of difficulty. By the end, teachers are provided a recommended level for that student to begin. The program starts by offering passages and subsequent questions on one of the 60 topics a teacher can choose from.
