Level Control

When creating an assignment, teachers can choose to control the article level their students see. Their students will only be able to access the article at that level. After submitting the quiz, students will be able to see the article at all levels.

How to control the level of an assignment

  1. On an article or Text Set, click Assign

  2. Click the selection bar under Text Level Locking. 

  3. Select a reading level.

  4. Add classes to assign the content. Customize the assignment with instructions for your students.

  5. Click Assign Now to assign the article(s) to your students at the selected level.

Because Newsela is adaptive, if teachers choose not to control the level, Newsela will use each student's performance on quizzes to present the article at the student's just-right reading level. You can learn how these levels are determined here.
