The Moodle “Reader” plug-in
module provides quizzes on over 7000 graded readers and
books for young readers, so that teachers can have a simple way to
assess their students' work. All quizzes are randomized with a
time-limit for their completion which allows students to take the
quizzes open-book, even at home, while minimizing the possibility of
cheating. Note that there is no reading material for students on either
system apart from the quizzes themselves. These tools are available free
or charge, supported by the Extensive Reading Foundation.
The Extensive Reading approach to language acquisition advocates the reading of a large volume of material that is easier than the learner's language level, rapidly
with little dictionary use, of material of the learner's own choice.
Through this massive amount of reading the student can internalize the
grammar and vocabulary that has already been studied. See the Extensive Reading Foundation and ER-Central for further information on this approach to language learning.
This site offers support to those who have installed the Moodle "Reader" plug-in
on their own school's Moodle. Former users of the plugin, or plugin users that still use quizzes acquired from the old moodlereader.net or moodlereader.org sites will have noticed that quizzes can no longer be downloaded to your Moodle site. Your accounts have been transferred here, meaning that you can log in with your "old" username, but you will probably have to create a new password. If you are new to this site, or the Moodle Reader plugin, you might like to start by creating an account on this site. You can do that here.
Use of the plugin requires registration and approval from the owners of the software. If you are interested in using the Reader plugin on your Moodle site, please provide the following information:
1) the name of your institution
2) the potential number of
3) general information about the graded/youth readers available to your
students (main series, estimate of total number of books, etc)
Send your registration request to Tom Robb at email@example.com or the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once registered, you will be authorized on this site and able to access the available MReader quizzes by installing the Moodle Reader plugin on your Moodle site. The Reader plugin is available here. For those who want this functionality but do not have a suitable Moodle installation, please check out https://mreader.org
