The Moodle Reader Module

The Moodle Reader Module | Teaching L2 Reading | Scoop.it

This site is for the support of the Moodle Reader Module, a module created by Tom Robb in Japan that implements quizzes on graded readers and other reading material suitable for extensive reading programs. Often times reading logs are inadequate for keeping students accountable for their extensive reading. Quizzes are one way to make students more accountable for their reading.

 

I've found there are some drawbacks of using Moodle Reader, including a somewhat clunky interface that led to issues with editing and registering student data. But the administrator is prompt and always open to feedback.
