Getting Students Started in 3 Steps

Step 1: Add Students to Your Roster

The Roster makes it easy to create logins, send messages, and manage student activity for all your Learning A-Z subscriptions. Use the Roster to customize passwords, reading levels, incentives, groups, and more for your students.

Create a Roster when you first log in to benefit from product features and ensure students get the most from their personalized learning environment.



  1. Student passwords may be assigned using an icon or text.
  2. Groups allow you to organize students according to skill level, interest, or project.
  3. Incentives can be turned on or off students use to customize their Raz Rocket or Avatar Builder.



Step 2: Student Reading Level Placement

  • If you already know a studentís reading level, select it when adding them to your Roster.
  • If you donít know a studentís reading level, select the Reading Placement Tool.
    • The Reading Placement Tool identifies the appropriate starting point for students using Raz-Plus or Raz-Kids through a series of adaptive reading activities. Once theyíve completed the activities, students will be leveled at one of nine entry points.
    • The Reading Placement Tool places students at their independent reading level for Raz-Plus practice. Learn more about levels or how to determine a studentís instructional reading level at Assessing a Studentís Level.
