What are book quizzes?

It takes time and practice for children to become good readers. However, many busy parents simply don’t have the time to personally scrutinize every text that their children are assigned to read at school or elect to read on their own.


Ming Aretê Book Quizzes provides a simple yet effective method for helping parents to check children’s comprehension of the books they have read. Each quiz consists of a set of multiple-choice questions regarding the content of the chapter your child has just completed. If your child earns a high score, you can be confident that he or she has understood–and remembers–the most important elements in the chapter under review. If your child answers a question incorrectly, the quiz results give you the tools necessary to identify the reason for the mistake. The quizzes are short, fun, and challenging. Taking them helps young readers to recognize which details are important and ensures that they remember them. Detailed results are emailed to you upon your child’s completion of each quiz. *


* Users have perpetual access to quizzes they have completed and will receive notification by email when new quizzes are posted.
